9. Insofar as Ken attempts to recognise the immanent aspect in development he directly confuses it with transcendence.
So in his approach each lower is transcended and included in a higher stage (Ascent).
Then from this higher perspective, one achieves integration with lower stages (Descent).
However this reverse process does not properly represent immanence, but rather the transcendent aspect of integration.
Thus what Ken is really attempting to describe - in (linear) asymmetrical fashion - are the transcendent aspects of differentiation (Ascent) and integration (Descent) respectively.
However the proper incorporation of immanence and transcendence requires a (circular) bi-directional approach.
