"Return of the Archons" -- why the absorption chamber?

So I just re-watched "Return of the Archons" again.  It's an episode I've always liked.  But every time I watch it, I'm puzzled by the fact that the lawgivers are able to absorb Sulu into the body by pointing one of their hollow rods at him, but the other characters must be taken to an absorption chamber to become part of the body.  Is this discrepancy just a mismanagement of dramatic tension, or is there an explanation (or potential explanation) for it?

Falor was a prosperous merchant who went on a journey to gain greater awareness: Through storms he crossed the Voroth Sea/ To reach the clouded shores of Raal/ Where old T’Para offered truth./ He traveled through the windswept hills/ And crossed the barren Fire Plains/ To find the silent monks of Kir./ Still unfulfilled, he journeyed home/ Told stories of the lessons learned/ And gained true wisdom by the giving. – Falor’s Journey, “Innocence”

I think the absorbtion chamber had a WiFI connection with the lawgivers' staffs but it quit working.
