I don't think it is....Where did you learn that? But, if it is, the last stage might be death as the room is dark and eary.

blue stands for birth purple stands for infancy green stands for childhood orange stands for adolesence white stands for middle age or adult hood violet stands for old age and black stands for death
the reason the rooms are placed in a way that you cannot see into the other is because you cannot see what the future holds. notice, the blue room is toward the far east which stands for the rising sun and the black room is in the west standing for the setting sun. it all fits perfectly.
