[Comments welcome] 




TOPICLEIBNIZMATERIALISM
Existence Mental (Nonphysical) + Physical
The nonphysical is beyond spacetime, the physical is within it.Physical, only 
in spacetime
SpacetimeExists only around particlesExists everywhere
RealityOnly mental is realOnly physical is real
Ideas Exist mentallyDo not exist
MathematicsOnly logic and numbers mentally exist, not physically.Does not exist
Physics Mentally exists as descriptions of particle behavior according to God's 
Pre-existing HarmonyPhysics seems to be embedded (?) in the particles
GodIs the only doer and perceiver and so is necessary for existence. Is a fairy 
tale.
NothingThe absence of a particleCan exist everywhere
