Main Question or Discussion Point

could it be, that the transformation of energy throughout the universe from one form to another is slowing down?; Similar to a wave pool gradually becoming still?

What do you mean by transformation of energy from one form to another? As in PE to KE or mass to KE?

i mean all transformations. Maybe think of it in terms of the vibrating strings of string theory finally settling down and not vibrating anymore, resulting maybe in a universe with only one stagnant form of energy

In string theory, if the strings weren't vibrating they wouldn't be anything other than strings. That is, there would be no electrons, protons, neutrons etc. if the strings from string theory stopped vibrating. As far as I know, no one has ever suggested that this is or is going to happen at any point in the future.
