Hi Stephen P. King
L's universe is a case of downward causation from the top (the One).
So the top (the One) is absolutely necessary.
You must be thinking of materialism, which causes upward from the
bottom and is Godless and mindless, at least strictly speaking.

I disagree. The Humean idea of causation does not apply to Monads.
Monads do not 'cause' changes in each other at all. Their perceptions
just happen to be synchronous (and thus the possibility of bisimulation
between them obtains and the appearance of exchange of information).
