I think you are a little confused.

 

You are able to hold 5 orbs at once but to chain 2 DP you need 6 orbs. Essentially you are banking 5 orbs, using DP then use insanity. After 1 gcd of Insanity in the above rotation MB comes off cd and so you use this immediately to gain the 6h orb(now 3 available after the first DP). 

The DP will still be active so insanity can be channeled for 2 more gcds followed by another DP allowing for a second lot of insanity.

 

tl;dr you are using as much DP/Insanity as possible in that window whilst still using MB on cd.

IIRC, after the buffs a few weeks ago, if you're using CoP then you don't DoT weave anymore, you just simply spam mind spike in between mind blasts.

If you have the Heroic Archimonde trinket or higher, don't bother DoT Weaving. If you have a Normal/Normal Warforged version, there's still a slight gain to be had, albeit not nearly as much as before. Without an Archimonde trinket at all, DoT Weaving is still the best sub-CoP-play style for single target.
