Particle physics according to Plato, Leibniz, and Feynman (ver 1) Comments are very welcome and this version is likely to change.
I begin with an overall structure of the universe, a hierarchical government with Plato's One in command, and with leibniz's universe of colonies of monads within monads. resulting from Leibniz's localized universe as consisting of an infinity of monadic points (a dust) in mental space. Leibniz did not believe in the atomic theory and instead posited that the universe consists of a myriad of substances. Here we consider those substances to be instances of the 12 elementary particles or composites of such. First, all of the monads of the universe will be within an outer "bag" (only in the conceptual or monadic sense), the gravitational force monad. This being so, the gravitational monad will be the supreme monad, to use Leibniz's term. Inside of that gravitational bag will be two exclusive sets of bags or monads, a fermionic bag, iinside of which are the force-carrying fermions inside fermionic bags and a similar one for the bosons. I do not know the details, but presumaqbly fermions are held together by electroweak forces and similarly for the bosons, so that each distinct fermion bag should contain one or more electroweak bags, and similarly all the way down for the bosons. Finally, we note that the "perceptions" of Leibniz's monads are relational between, to verying degrees, all of the other monads of the universe and the motions of the particles occurs according to Leibniz's pre-established harmony in their appetititions. These rapidly and continuously chang "pereceptions" will include relative positions and relative forces between particles (the four fundamental forces). This is accomplished through the gravitational monad by Plato's One and axccording to the pre-estABLISHED HARMONY These will be, to use Leibniz's term, "bare-naked monads", that is to say, "bare, naked "souls"", each containing the identities. of the particles (their histories, perceptions, and appetite)s, And it is likely that the number and type of monad will change owing to collisions, the physics alrfeady contained in Leibniz's pre-established harmony as eg Feyman diagrams. .
