Hi Stephen P. King
Quanta and monads are singular entities.
QM has the dualism particle/wave
Monadology has extended/inextended.
These might be construed as similar.
But QM doesn't to my knowledge have the dualism objective/subjective
unless the waveform is subjective.
A QM system is not just a wavefunction; the wavefunction is just
one of its canonical descriptions. The unitary evolution of a QM system
is a computation (minus the input and output). Thus by Bruno's reasoning
it has a 1p and is, as you say, subjective.

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

I like the idea that pure QM systems are the best example
of a monad.
