Yes, you've got it, Cass.

This is simply an allegorical explanation of "entropy" ... The tendency of 
everything in the universe to run down and lose energy as the universe expands 
through time.  Or, according to the TheFreeDictionary.com; "the tendency for 
all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of inert 
uniformity."   This is one of the fundamental laws that science rests on, but hasn't 
the faintest idea of how it actually works.

On the other hand, as occult science see it, the physical universe doesn't 
actually reverse its expansion and crunch back down into its black hole 
singularity (as some avocates of the "Big Bang" or "standard model" propose) -- but 
simply accelerates its expansion indefinitely, gradually getting more and more 
tenuous (as it travels back up the three steps of the global chain) until all 
the fundamental particles of physical matter are fully attenuated and 
transformed back to their zero-point centers of origin -- which is pure spirit or 
consciousness ... With all their decayed physical energy or mass reverting to their 
individual or singular spinergy's or abstract motion around each ubiquitous 
zero-point.

However, since these zero-points are all in the same unified or "absolute 
space" (which appears to us as being "nothing") they are joined "coadunately" as 
if they were one Spirit or consciousness at the center of the primal Cosmic 
"Singularity" composed of the total added spinergy of each "particle," "atom" or 
"molecule" -- which is, then, effectively concentrated around that one 
universal zero- or laya-point as the abstract motion (i.e., "spinergy" or infinite 
angular momentum) of absolute space... That, in its absolute zero-point center, 
lies sleeping and unconscious until it is awakened after its "pralaya" to 
become the source of the next manifestation (i.e., "manvantara") of the Cosmos 
(Solar System Chain, Earth Chain, etc.) -- analogously and correspondingly 
following the steps outlined in the Book of Dzyan and the formula therein, "The 
three, the one, the four, the one, the five, the twice seven, the sum total."   
See: 
How It All Began
http://users.aol.com/uniwldarts/uniworld.artisans.guild/chakrafield.html

Thus, as the Ancient Masters said, "Matter spiritualizes and Spirit 
Materializes." See:
Universal Evolution
http://users.aol.com/uniwldarts/uniworld.artisans.guild/evolution2.html

And then, let's use our imagination and compare this graphic allegory with 
what the Mahatma says about, ". . . the world of non-being, where exists the 
eternal mechanical motion, the uncreated cause from whence proceeds in a kind of 
incessant downward and upward rotation . . ."
