Here very briefly is how Leibniz might explain morphic resonance and the presence of the past.

I am not a marxist.

1. Each substance or simple body has a physical representation in the phenomenol world and a mental representation called a monad in the mental world. (This is Idealism)


Too much fuzzy for me.




2. The monads are closely related to morphisms. Each monad has within it a
homunculus (so that the monadology is throughly anthropomorphic),
representing roughly Aristotle's levels of being, some complete (man) , some primitive (a rock).

I think a universal program might do the work, or a Löbian one. A universal person.




3. Also within each monad are a stack of "perceptions", which are not conventional perceptions (seen directly by the monad) but are snapshots given it in a rapid series of updates by the Supreme Monad (God or the One).

That's the heart of the "aristotelian error", pehaps. This is only a local probable universal machine. Reality is *much* vaster.




4. These perceptions reflect all of the perceptions of the other monads (from their own perspectives) in the universe, which is made up entirely of monads. So it's
a holographic universe.

Not bad metaphor.



5. The stack of past perceptions in each monad are its memory. Each contains a snapshot of the
entire universe of other monads.

There is something like that. It would be long to show the math here.



6. Leibniz does not (so far I know) go into the past with any monad, but each monad also contains a stack of "appetites", which are what the monad desires at any instant. If there is a connection between the perceptions and the appetites, the monad would inform the homunculus to repeat the past. Here's your habits.

OK. Leibniz was well inspired. He would have love the UMs. I think. And Church's thesis, which make the U genuinely Universal.




In all the universe of monads acts like a computer program with the
Supreme Monad as its central processing unit.

The supreme monad are the man, the God of comp is far more beyond (transcendental), at least from inside computerland.
