Monads are nonphysical, psychical substances whose forceful life is an immanent activity. For monads, there is no outer world to access, no larger, broader vision. What the monads see are the projections of their own appetites and their own ideas. In Leibniz's succinct phrase: "Monads have no windows." Like internal linkIndra's Net, each monad mirrors the whole world. Each monad represents the universe in concentrated form...Each microcosm contains the macrocosm."

The coordination tacks place through the supervisory role of the Central Infinite Monad, traditionally known as "god".
