But the other lifewaves (in the elementas, mineral, vegetable and animal
kingdoms) that are presently resident on this globe together with us now
ARE deserving of our respect as evolving monads even thought they won't
pass into their next respective kingdoms until the 5th chain.

That doesn't make complete sense. While there may be sishtas for each
kingdom from preceding lifewaves and rounds (that have passed on to
other globes) present on this globe, there are also a succession of
other lifewaves that currently exist and evolve on this globe and ensoul
all of the kingdoms.

We are in the middle of the 5th root race. The monads comprising the
life streams that currently ensoul the human as well as the other
kingdoms on our globe are here in abundance. Their sishtas have by and
large been re-awakened.

You are following the course of one connotation of "lifewave" in your
thinking, but not taking into account another in which there are a
succession of six other "lifewaves" in addition to the one you consider.
These are all presently evolving and ensouling forms in all kingdoms on
our globe now.

The three elemental kingdoms are said to be on a downward arc,
involuting. The Mineral Kingdom is the turning point and the vegetable,
animal and human kingdoms are on the upward evolutionary arc.

This stuff will boggle your noodle!
For just that very reason Buddha asked us rather to be compassionate to
all sentient life and work toward liberation for all.
