The History Of Monads And Monadology.
Monad, (from the Greek monas, “unit”), is an elementary individual substance that hologramically reflects the order of the world around it, and from which material properties are derived. A monad is a centered object. Atoms are monadic. Celestial bodies like planets and stars are monadic. Chakras are monadic. The celestial sphere is the skin of a monad. Molecules are micro-scale monadic (composite) structures. Solar systems are macro-scale monadic (composite) structures.
MONAD, the Planetary Calendar-Clock app, has a monadic structure. It has many different concentric shells and layers, all organized around BOTH the Earth at the Center of the celestial sphere and the Sun at the center of the solar system. It’s a Planetary Calendar-Clock, but not just an Earth-centered Calendar-Clock. When fully developed, MONAD will offer the ability to assume different planetary centers. Each planet has an orbital year, and a solar day based on rate of spin relative to the Sun. If a planet’s equatorial plane (perpendicular to the spin axis) is tilted “enough“ relative to the orbital (invariable) plane of the solar system (Earth’s tilt is 23.5º), then that planet has a 4-phase seasonal year. If a planet has a moon, it has a lunar month.
Earth, and every other planet in our solar system except Venus, has an intrinsic (self generated) magnetosphere. Venus has an induced magnetosphere, so it still contributes as a receiver and a transmitter of electro-magnetic information, contributing to the combined “magneto-form” of the solar system, defined as the combined magnetospheres of all the celestial bodies making up the solar system; extensive and complex beyond imagination.
Elements of a Scientific Astrology.
Astrology is based on the belief that the planets, Sun and Moon somehow have a significant and ongoing impact on our human bodies and thus our lives. Most respectable scientists make a great distinction between astrology, which is for “New-Agers,” hippies and the like, and astronomy, which is scientific. Basic astronomy makes no claims regarding the influence of a planet beyond it’s gravitational pull. Most astronomers are not interested in a planet’s electro-magnetic qualities and assume these qualities are undetectable to humans and have no impact on us. Most scientists can’t imagine how something that is so far away it can’t be seen with the naked eye, and barely seen even with a powerful telescope, could have a measurable impact on our human bodies separated by so much apparently empty space. In contrast, astrologers still believe in the Hermetic principle of correspondence: As above, so below, but in a different fashion. An astrologer’s model of reality involves chakras; organizational (endocrine) centers in the human body that are informed (provided information) by a corresponding planet’s magnetosphere. Monadic correspondence includes the idea that planets, atoms and endocrine circulatory centers in the body, all share a common field of electro-magnetic awareness, the result of resonance (electro-magnetic induction) with shared (monadic) form across scale and throughout space.
Planetary and solar magnetospheres do not have a fixed, finite size. They extend out to infinity. The force of this electro-magnetic field decreases away from the center with distance squared, but no real force is required for the transmission of information. A planet’s magnetosphere doesn’t need to be “powerful enough” to have an effect on us at a great distance. In the same way, a wireless garage door opener doesn’t need to transmit the power required to open the door, just information (code) which triggers the operation of a local motor which then lifts the door.
Claiming the planets don’t affect us because they are so far away is like claiming DNA doesn’t affect us because it is so tiny. Amazingly enough, the solar system is 9 orders of magnitude larger than your body, and DNA is 9 orders of magnitude smaller. We’re right in the middle. And seemingly empty space is actually filled to the brim with information about the monadic bodies (stars and planets, and atoms, and endocrine centers) that occupy it.
The term monad was first used by the Pythagoreans as the name of the beginning number (one) of a series, from which all following numbers derived. The monad begat the dyad (from the Greek word for two), which begat all the other numbers; the point begetting lines or finiteness, then two-dimensional entities, three-dimensional entities, bodies, culminating in the four elements earth, water, air & fire, from which the rest of our world is built up. In other words, matter accumulates around the monad.
Giordano Bruno in On the Monad, Number, and Figure (1591) described three fundamental types of monads: God (macro), souls (human scale), and atoms (micro). The idea of monads was further popularized by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (inventor, along with Isaac Newton, of the calculus) in “Monadologia” (1714). According to Leibniz, monads are basic (archetypal) substances that make up the universe but lack spatial extension and hence are immaterial. Each monad is a unique, indestructible, dynamic, soul-like entity whose properties are a function of its perceptions and appetites. Monads have no true causal relation with other monads, but all are perfectly synchronized with each other by God in a pre-established harmony. The objects of the material world are simply appearances of collections of monads.
Much like how one clock may be in synchronicity with another, but the timing of the first clock is not caused by the second (or vice versa), rather they are simply keeping the same time. So it is with monads; they may at times seem to cause each other, but rather they are simply part of God’s pre-established harmony, and thus appear to be in synchronicity. Leibniz concludes that “if we could understand the order of the universe well enough, we would find that it surpasses all the wishes of the wisest people, and that it is impossible to make it better than it is—not merely in respect of the whole in general, but also in respect of ourselves in particular.” Leibniz believed that any body, such as the body of an animal or man, has one dominant monad (center) which controls the others within it. This dominant monad is often referred to as the soul.
