What purpose does the idea of an actual Supreme Monad have? The
point is that /there does not exist a single Boolean algebraic
description of its perception/. We can still imagine what such a
supremum <http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Supremum.html> exist but such
only are real for one individual mind at a time. This is the "person
relationship with God" idea. This is a possible solution to the measure
problem that Bruno discusses.

since the objects of experience are all different
and are infinite variety not only as a whole
but in themselves.

Leibniz would say, "If there's no God, we'd have to invent him so
everything could function."
"Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed."
