I suspect that these "points" aren't really that arbitrary from a physiological 
point of view 
(if they're really major "states of consciousness" this MUST be the case in 
some measurable 
sense). Different parts of the brain are involved with different modes of our 
life. CC 
apparently primarily involves  PC within the frontal lobes of the brain. GC, I 
would guess, 
involves furher integration with the more emotional mid-brain while UC/BC 
integration with the perceptual centers at the back.

This also explains the "order" thing. Integration of the front and back 
[probably] can't 
happen without the middle being integrated first or at least, simultaneously.
