I have no trouble with understanding "dimension" for globe. For race, I
prefer evolutionary period. For instance this planet (4th round Globe D
Earth) is in its fifth evolutionary period. My understanding is that
the terms race and globe were coined by A.P. Sinnett during the course
of his correspondence with the Mahatmas. They just uncritically made
use of his suggested terms, and HPB did the same. At the time, the word
"race" was not so clearly defined among anthropologists, thus the racist
connotations were not so evident. In the 20th century, it took on the
familiar racist connotations. More recently, anthropologists have
tended to drop the term altogether. As an anthropology professor once
told me: "There is only one race: the human race." Physically, we are
in the fifth root race. Developmentally, we seem to be running behind.
SD readers often get confused about HPB's language regarding races. One
of the problems is that they need to keep in mind when HPB is writing
from the perspective of the physical, intellectual or monadic lines of
evolution. HPB qualifies this key idea in the SD on pg. 181 of vol. 1.
Can the word "globe" be understood as "dimension'?
( Could the word "race" also be undestood as " spiritual lineage" ? )
At the HPB´s time, the word " race " and "globes" were used due to the lack
of another better term for that century.
What do you think?

I can submit this from my notes but cannot verify it.
1 WORLD PERIOD = 1 GLOBE (Earth Planet)
1 GLOBE = carries and promotes evolution of 7 ROOT RACES
1 ROOT RACE - Reigning stock consists of 7 SUB RACES
1 SUB RACE -consists of 7 FAMILY RACES (BRANCHLETS)
