That is not actually what he was saying as I am trying to understand. He
said that there is also an animal monad in us along with the rest of the
monads. We are composite beings and the animal monad in us now becomes a
human monad in the next round or something like that. Our present human
monad is headed for Dhyan- Chohans at that time. He is at pains to point out
he is not talking about our rupas bodies. Maybe it is the human-animal
monad as distinct from the animal-animal monad that sort of oversees the
body and the elemental essences that make it up.
The animal-animal monad needs a spell as human-animal monad so to evolve to
human-human monad state then to human-dhyan-chohan stage and onwards and
onwards. It is a long process like billions of years from animal-animal
monad to human-human monad.
To understand something properly I need to convert it into simpler terms and
that ain't so easy with all this stuff. It is like I paint myself a mental
picture of what I am trying to understand and once it starts to look like a
painting then I begin to understand.
