This might be of possible importance with regard to comp. 

First of all, there are a fixed number of monads in this world, since they
cannot be created or destroyed. 

While, as I understand it, the identities or Souls of monads do not change,
they do change internally. This is because their contents represent the 
rapidly changing (in time and space as well as internally) corporeal bodies 
in the changing physical world. 

This seems to be Leibniz's solution to the problem raised by the 
question, "How can monads, being ideas, belong to unchanging Platonia, 
if the monads at the same time represent rapidly changing coporeal 
bodies in this contingent, ever-changing world ?" The answer seems to be 
that only the identities or souls of the monads, not their contents,
belong to Platonia.

With regard to comp, presumably there are a fixed number
of sets or files, each with a fixed identity, each of which 
contains rapidly changing data. The the data in each file
instantly "reflects" the data in all of the other files, each
data set from a unique "perspective".
