In Kabbalah they call this unfurlment - the process of one center source (Creator God) dividing into the male/female duality (adam kadamon) then giving birth to all that exists (allthatis).
I too think that there is a center source from which all extends. But, I also think that this unfurlment - this extension of source energy (no matter how vast the extension) is still contained within source.
Or I should say that no matter how vast the unfurlment, all things contained within it are source energy. Nothing leaves its source or the creation doesn't exist outside the creator.
