Maybe another way of looking at it is that something needs to be 'added' to
"432" in order to arrive at "777"?

4:3:2:1 is a ratio of Maha Yuga (Krita, Treta, Dwarpa and Kali Yuga). I.e.:

432,000 (Kali Yuga) + 432,000 = 864,000 (Dwarpa Yuga); 864,000 + 432,000 =
1,296,000 (Treta Yuga); 1,296,000 + 432,000 = 1,728,000 (Krita Yuga).  Maha
Yuga = 4,320,000.

It is maybe not sufficient to run the Maha Yugic cycle(s) in a passive state
and that we need to 'add' something to it ("1" - symbolic of ONE?) ourselves
to arrive at the completeness of 7x7x7 *plus* 7.

"Moreover, the Secret Doctrine teaches:-

(c) The fundamental identity of all Souls with the Universal Over-Soul, the
latter being itself as aspect of the Unknown Root; and the obligatory
pilgrimage for every Soul - a spark of the former - through the Cycle of
Incarnation (or "Necessity") in accordance with Cyclic and Karmic law,
during the whole term.  In other words, no purely spiritual Buddhi (divine
Soul) can have an independent (conscious) existence before the spark which
issued from the pure Essence of the Universal Sixth principle, - or the
OVER-SOUL,- has (a) passed through every elemental form of the phenomenal
world of that Manvantara, and (b) acquired individuality, first by natural
impulse, and then by self-induced and self-devised efforts (checked by its
Karma), thus ascending through all the degrees of intelligence, from the
lowest to the highest Manas, from mineral and plant, up to the holiest
archangel (Dhyani-Buddha).  The pivotal doctrine of the Esoteric philosophy
admits no privileges or special gifts in man, save those won by his own Ego
through personal effort and merit throughout a long series of metempsychoses
and reincarnations." (SD, I, 17).

The Cycles (and cycles within cycles) run their rounds thru all Eternity.
It's what we do with-in them that counts.
