This is all quite interesting.

However I do not understand how magma
which has seperated from its source of
energy deep inside the Earth can be "HEATING UP"

It seems to me that from the time it begins
its bouyant travels melting through the
Earths Crust to reach the surface it
will be cooling all the way.

Maybe what you are saying here is that
the magma chamber is expanding or
something like that.

I do, however, understand the meaning of
increased activity.
