I recently read in Briane Green's book The Fabric of the Cosmos that our Universe may be moving into a state of higher entropy.

Now my question about his statement is does he mean that the universe's contents are just being spread out more? Or something a little deeper, because in the chapter he sounded like he was really trying to make a point on something that I may have missed.
