Bookfilter: I am trying to remember a story. It is either a short story, or the epilogue of a book. I am 90% certain it was written by Isaac Asimov.

Here is the key plot element I remember: The tale posits that the ultimate evolution of the universe is a robot, and the story ends by the robot simultaneously disabling itself while also basically restarting the big bang for the next oscillation of the universe. It's sort of a story about what Asimov thinks it would be like to be the the thing that /is/ the twist in the mobius strip.
Help me remember what it was, or what short story collection it was in!!
