Hi Stephen P. King1) 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.

Dear Roger,

`We cannot use the conventional mereology when considering monads;`

`one must use an organic mereology. The compositions of a pair of monads`

`is a new monad that is distinct from its parents and yet part of them.`

`Monads are always wholes, just as living things are always integral wholes.`

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

`The relations between monads is Non-well Founded. There is no`

`minimum nor maximal monad. Each is infinite.`

Here would be an example of three monads : Animal->dog->small->barking Animal->dog->large->barking Animal->dog->large->not-barking

`No, there are 6 monads in that example. The characteristics only`

`occur once. Animal, dog, small, large, barking, not-barking are each a`

`behavior/change that defines a monad. You continuwe to use the wrong`

`organizing principle to think of monads.`

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.

`Any change that is beyond the change defining a monad is equivalent`

`to the creation of a new monad if we think of them as objects. But`

`monads are actually eternal, it is the synchronization of their percepts`

`that creates the appearance of creation and destruction.`
