I was very confused about what you were saying here, but eventually think I got it, and it is a very good point. What you are pointing out is that you get your second discipline at 5th level and it functions as 5 levels lower, so it starts as 0th level, which makes no sense, right? Same for later disciplines.

This got fixed in the final version of the book... it states 4,9, and 14 levels lower now

I also found myself confused by the numbers of power a psion is supposed to have. According to the table you start with 4 - but is that four of your choice or does that include the power you get from your discipline and the power you get from your tradition?

Disciplines grant an additional power, not from the powers you choose.
