You ever played "Whack A Mole" at the local arcade?  When you whack one mole it causes others to surface?  That's integration.  When you change one variable - such as increasing scope - it causes a change in other variables, such as schedule or cost.

The point of Integration is to be heads-up to all the consequences of a change on one area.

If you listed that nine knowledge areas in PMBOK, printed them out in a really small wallet-sized (or purse-sized) card, you'd have your crib-notes about what other areas to think about for a given change in one area.  Try it.  If something changed the schedule, does it change the human resources mix?  ...the identified risks?  ...the costs?   ...the communications needs?
