Hi Stephen P. King  

Leibniz was not a solipsist, since he took it for 
granted that the world out there was actually there.  
If a tree fell in a forest and nobody heard it, it still 
would have fallen.

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

And then there is Leibniz's identity of indiscernibles, identity 
there meaning that you only need one of them, throw the rest away.

Hi Roger, 

    Yes but! We have to solve the "other minds" problem or be content to simmer 
in our solipsist state of being. This requires something "external" to the 
singleton sets of objects. We need to have "room to make copies" of that would 
be otherwise identical objects.
