What is 'go through a cycle of converging'?
one of the joys of zooming out to connect together the dots of the past is that every so often you see interesting patterns. Here’s a perfect example. Remember how over millions of years the world’s tectonic plates go through a cycle of converging
into one giant supercontinent and then split into small fragments? Well, zoom out over hundreds of years of human history and you’ll see the same cycle. Empires form and split apart. Then new empires form and split apart again.

The whole concept isn't cycle of converging. The cycle is a cycle of converging (coming together) and breaking apart, and the example is of Earth's landmasses coming together to form Pangaea, and then separating to form separate continents.
