I have an idea!!! (finally) I think we're all assuming that the "Age" is referring to the website itself, and that it's been "lifted from histories." But could this riddle be referring to an actual Age? Hmm, what fits the description...
D'ni/Earth might fit. The closest fit I can think of would be Terahnee/Devokan (lifted from the histories of the books, or from out of history when it was found by Atrus, living new with old breath with the fall of the Tehraneese [with old breath being the D'ni return, laws, or the bacteria, perhaps]). Of course, any resemblance to such an enigmatic phrase could very easily be coincidental (even if it is a riddle).
