This is what I read in Leadbeater and Jinarajadasa, but not in Purucker.
It is inconsistent with the model from "The Mahatma Letters". If you
can find some Blavatsky quotes to support it, I'd like to read them.

Basically, a Monad cannot outstrip the evolution of its lifewave by
more than one Round. And it takes all Seven Rounds to complete the
evolution in a Kingdom. (The only exceptions are the Bodhisattvas and
Buddhas, which are Sixth Rounders.) It is not possible therefore to
complete our human evolution, nor for animals to complete their animal
evolution at this point.

The door to the next Kingdom represents a critical point at which
the Monads have to pass in order to continue their progress through
the remaining Rounds in order to graduate. It is not the graduation

The reference to Animal Monads in the Human Kingdom that comes to
mind is by Purucker, in (I think) Volume III of "The Dialogues of
G. de Purucker", in a supplemental section on the Animal Monad.

These late-comers may by those *humans* in which the Manasaputras
were late to incarnate rather than Animal Monads.

This distinguishes the different classes of humans *to a degree*.
But since we're in the Fourth Round, we're really working on Kama
or Kama-Manas, and haven't really gotten to Manas proper until the
Fifth Round.

My primary source for this is Purucker. If you can show Blavatsky
to disagree, I'd like to study what she says, since Purucker seems
consistent with "The Mahatma Letters".
