The compact manifolds, what I call string theory monads, are more fundamental than strings. Strings with spin, charge and mass, as well as spacetime, emerge from the compact manifolds, perhaps in the manner that you indicate below. The one difference from what you are considering and the compact manifolds (CMs) that I can see is that the CMs are fixed in the emergent space and not free floating- which in itself implies a spacetime manifold. Perhaps another is that from your discussion, it appears that all your monads can be identical, whereas the CMs are required to be different and distinct in order for consciousness to emerge from an arithmetic of real numbers. However since from wiki "Each Boolean algebra B has an associated topological space, denoted here S(B), called its Stone space" and "For any Boolean algebra B, S(B) is a compact totally disconnected Hausdorff space" and "Almost all spaces encountered in analysis are Hausdorff; most importantly, the real numbers", I contend that your monads as well as mine must be enumerable-that is all different and distinct. I apologize for using wiki. But I confess that what it says is the limit of my understanding. Any way what I propose is that all of what you say below may more or less be appropriate for the compact manifolds of string theory if we replace the dust with an array.
