AHA, I can see from your avatar why you're so keen on Leibniz - you're almost his double!

Are you talking to Roger or me?
Not sure which avatar you meant, nor which picture of Leibniz?

Don't mind too much ...

:)

Where's the math?

Good question.

I comment Roger below:

Although I cannot find a direct reference in Leibniz's writings, they
have not all been translated. Nevertheless Leibniz's model
of perception is seemingly based on the high technology of the 17th century,
Huygen's microscope. The indirect reference to the perceiver
as based on the lens of a microscope, which can represent a
field of view at a single point, as a unity,, as a perceiver or self must do
Leibniz's conceptioon of reality was similar to this :

"Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because
of the interconnection of all things with one another.
I do not conceive of any reality at all as without genuine unity.
(Gottfried Leibniz, 1670)

This single point in the perceiver and in reality itself
is reflected in Leibniz's monad (which represents the many in the one),
Plato's model of the One,

OK, up to here.


the concepts of white and black holes
and the twistor in Penrose's physics..

? (That's a big jump which would need tuns of precisions, publications and independent verifications), ...
... and the math, as Richard asked.




Leibniz's monadology itself can be used to derive
the self as lens, since a person can be focused down
to be represented by a monad, which
cAn be understood as a point homunculus (the perceiver).

Too much analogical for me.

Bruno




It is also well known that Leibniz referred to the myriad
of microscopic organisms seen in a microscope as
vderying his view of the world as the many in the one
(the monad).
