Right. Collections of things, like cells and molecules are brought together, through some sort of attraction that results in a mechanism of "unity" of a new thing. It doesn't follow that the Universe, a collection of everything, isn't a cohesive body, in its own right, or that there isn't a consciousness that inhabits it.
Could the Universe be a temporary vehicle for God's (et al) self expression, the same way our bodies are self expression of who we are, at our present state.
Where did God get life? Who gave life to God?
Now if you're saying that the entire physical universe may be unified as one body that dies and recycles to another life, keep in mind that time is the movement of objects within the universe (the Earth spining once = 1 day, the Earth going around the Sun once = 1 year), and different universes in The Multiverse would have different laws of physics and systems of times.
I'm speculating about such a time when the animating force of the Universe, aka "God", leaves its universal body, which would be a perception of death. I'm questioning if God's exodus from the physical Universe, leaving it a corpse, soon to become a vacant skeleton devoid of life, will "feed" another, possible continuous life cycle, that is yet unperceivable to us.

When God (all Spirits) stop forming/stabilizing it through Belief/Faith/Thought, it will not exist.
So, you believe that matter (The Universe) will cease to exist when God stops animating. How will existence be expressed in a static void?
Like our bodies, it follows that God's corpse will feed a greater cycle, yet unperceivable to us
These questions make a couple assumptions that I don't agree with:
1) God is a static void, and only the universe is not.
2) If the universe ends that means the end of all form, but only a void.
But, you can't motion without matter, ie. The Universe.
