Dallas offers:

I think the matter can be resolved if we refer to what HPB writes
in SD I pp. 327 to 329, but particularly on 328 where she shows
the awakening of Spirit/Matter from the Pralayic state and the
resumption of various activities following that.

Does that help ?

I would go so far as to say that mind is the ultimate cause of
the split between spirit and matter, because without mind
there is no dualistic division at all (Mind is the slayer of the
real, etc).
