Reality is not matter, it's Heidegger's dasein, which is Leibniz's monad Materialists spend much effort on trying to show that reality is simply physics. But the philosophy of Plato, Leibniz, Kant, and now Heidegger shows that materialism and analytic philosophy is incomplete, since it omits mind from reality.
Leibniz modeled reality as material bodies in the dualism of a monad, which is the corresponding mental being of matter. The matter is in spacetime, the monad is outside of spacetime. Heidegger's dasein is a combination of the german words "da", meaning "there", and "sein" meaning "being" or "mental". The "da" is in spacetime and the "sein" is outside of spacetime, so a dasein is a monad. Thus Heidegger's universe is essentially the same as Leibniz's, an infinite collection of monads or daseins.
