Hi Stephen P. King  

1) No two monads can be the same, so at least one 
of them within each type has to be the dominant one. 
This is like a representative govt wherein the dominant 
one governs its subset. And it is governed by higher levels.

2) As that suggests, there are levels of monads, each 
monad "containing" a myriad of monads, 
not physically but as a logical subset.  

Here would be an example of three monads : 

Animal->dog->small->barking 

Animal->dog->large->barking 

Animal->dog->large->not-barking 

3)  "Above" animals you have man, and to my mind at least you have a 
higher level than man, say intellectual with a spiritual level (it is not 
specified), 
which I suppose you could think of as Jesus, and above and beyond Jesus, God 
(just an eye, not a monad) looking down through all of the monads, seeing 
down through all perfectly, constnatly updating their perceptions, causing
everything to happen.

not the supreme monad itself. 


Dear Roger, 

    This is a contradiction of the relations between monads, there cannot be a 
"special" monad. Just as there is no 'center' on the surface of a sphere, there 
is no central monad whose percepts are a consistent unification of all of the 
percepts of all other monads. This is a subtle argument. Think of a list of all 
possible and different properties that can exist for a percept. Can this list 
be infinite and self-consistent? No! Do you know why? 
    The idea of God as a 'supreme Ruler" is foreign to Monads as they do not 
allow for such a hierarchy in their mereology. Every monad is, in a literal 
sense, God.
