Hi Richard Ruquist 

No, the supreme monad is what God sees through and does through,
but God is behind or above the supreme monad.

Newton's God was something like that in that the universe was,
in Newton's words, God's "sensorium". But Newton had no
systematic view of the universe-- no supreme monad or monads 
of any kind. Newton believed simply that things happened as
if God's hand caused them to move.

Leibniz expressed what was logically necessary, not 
an opinion of God.

Roger,
The monads are collectively god
That's is likely what Newton would believe
and most likely what Liebnitz really believed in
but was afraid to express.
