From what I have studied of Leibniz' Monadology and commentary by
many authors, it seems to me that all appearances of interactions is
given purely in terms of synchronizations of the internal action of the
monads. This synchronization or co-ordination seems very similar to
Bruno's Bp&p idea but for an apriori given plurality of Monads. I
identify the computational aspect of the Monad with a unitary evolution
transformation (in a linear algebra on topological spaces).
I have been investigating whether or not it might be possible to
define the mereology of monads in terms of the way that QM systems
become and unbecome entangled with each other. Have you seen any similar
references to this latter idea?

Hi Stephen P. King
In the end, as Leibniz puts it, you couldn't tell the difference,
"seem" to have windows, but actually, since substances,
being logical entities, cannot actually interact,
they all must communicate instead through the supreme monad,
(the CPU) which presumably reads and writes on them.
I think they are like subprograms, with storage files,
which can't do anything by themselves, but must be
operated on by the CPU according to their
current perceptions (stored state data) which
reflect all of the other stored state date in
the universe of monads.
