## Summary

This is my promised explanation of what is a monad.

### Jesus is the cornerstone of the Kingdom

I guess Jesus is the living stone which is the cornerstone of the Kingdom.

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20  Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in | the Scriptures: | | "'The stone the builders rejected | | has become the cornerstone; | | the Lord has done this, | | and it is marvelous in our eyes'? | | "Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God | will be taken away from you and given to a | people who will produce its fruit. | | Anyone who falls on this stone will be | broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will | be crushed." When the chief priests and the | Pharisees heard Jesus' parables, they knew he | was talking about them. |

Kingdom on the structure of living stones. Apostles, prophets, I think. I will call them pneumatic branches.

What is a living stone? A monad?

What is a pearl? - I think it’s personal identity in Christ or knowledge of and good conscience with God.

### Hidden Treasure - Matthew 13:44, Pearl of Great Price - Matthew 13:45-46

 1 2 3  The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
 1 2 3  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

From the perspective of God:

• God’s people are a “pearl of great price; […] very precious to God, so highly esteemed by Christ, as his portion, his inheritance, and his jewels.” Christ was willing to give up everything-even his life-to buy us back, to redeem us, for eternal life with the Father in heaven.

From the perspective of man:

• Knowledge of and communion with God
• Hearing God’s voice.
• Being in good conscience with God

The pearl of truth is finding identity and rest in God; the holiest part of self.

Once found, anything which conflicts with it is falsehood.

1 Timothy 1:5 ESV
The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.

If I regress on that then that would have me in opposition to the preservation of the holiness of the temple of the heart/innermost- truth, which I can’t do.

And the gift is eternal evidence of God:

Upon finding the pearl I must sell everything and buy it - metaphorically.

Before finding the pearl, the night before I was broken and pleading with God for 🍓. I think that’s why 🍓 is my syzygy, or it is predestiny, as my vision says (what I have been making has been made for me already). The vision of the swallowtail flag pointing to the sacred heart of Jesus means:

• God’s army is full of people with the sacred heart of Jesus.
• 🍓 being my syzygy means she is in my heart.
• I carved out a piece for her

She is my syzygy (a divine match):

The pearl ultimately is identity in Christ and his resurrection, and in the spirit of truth. There is completion and rest - It’s a pleroma inside your heart; The fullness and Heaven exists, and all you could want in your heart:

• Knowledge of God
• Good conscience due to approval from God
• Rest / Truth

And that is what a monad is:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10  monad [#Leibniz’s system of metaphysics] Each monad is a unique, indestructible, dynamic, soullike entity. Monads have no true causal relation with other monads, but all are perfectly synchronized with each other by God in a preestablished harmony.

The Kingdom of Heaven is definitely putting everything down just for Jesus.

• Bankruptcy first, so you can devote yourself to Jesus.
• Salvation

Jesus completed me (first, spiritually):

Then my heaven was built:

 1 2 3 4  You are my heaven, my only heaven, You're all I wanted, and asked for too, The perfect day was when I saw you, Please don't take my heaven away.
 1 2 3 4  You are my syzygy, my only syzygy, I cannot imagine a day without you, Since when I realsed, you've been the beginning, Please don't take my syzygy away.

I don’t know if the Earthly syzygy though is necessary to have the pearl. I mean, for me, ultimately it’s the inside of the Bridal Chamber which matters. Which was strictly about identity in God. Therefore, the pearl is a relationship with God in good conscience.

A syzygy may be important for completion under-the-hood, but I do not know:

I make the reference to the pearl as one’s sysyzy. This demonstrates spiritual and earthly alignment:

You pay for this by a sacrifice of other things in your life which may give fleeting joy but are incompatible.

However, I personally believe these two situations coincide in a way, but commitment to Jesus, repentance and genuinely seeking His help comes first.

### Cosmic Philosophy

The term monad is used in some cosmic philosophy and cosmogony to refer to a most basic or original substance.

As originally conceived the Pythagoreans, the Monad is the Supreme Being, divinity or the totality of all things.

The term was first used by the Pythagoreans as the name of the beginning number of a series, from which all following numbers derived. Giordano Bruno in De monade, numero et figura liber (1591; “On the Monad, Number, and Figure”) described three fundamental types: God, souls, and atoms. The idea of monads was popularized by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in Monadologia (1714). In Leibniz’s system of metaphysics, monads are basic substances that make up the universe but lack spatial extension and hence are immaterial. Each monad is a unique, indestructible, dynamic, soullike 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 preestablished harmony. The objects of the material world are simply appearances of collections of monads.

Neither philosophical sense will help you understand the role of monads in Haskell. monad [#philosopher Leibniz] Almost nothing. An irreducible particle of perceptual reality. Neither philosophical sense will help you understand the role of monads in Haskell.

## Gnosticism

Pistis Sophia represents the soul, or more specifically, the part of the soul that incarnates; namely, the monad of consciousness in the concrete mind. Her name is a key to her role: Pistis is the Greek word for “faith.” Not blind faith, but faith arising from total conviction of inner knowledge.

Sophia is Greek for “wisdom.”

## Valentianism

Prominent early Christian gnostics like Valentinus taught that the Monad is the high source of the Pleroma, the region of light constituting “the fullness of the Godhead.” Through a process of emanation, various divine entities and realms emerge from the One.

Arranged hierarchically, they become progressively degraded due to their remoteness from the Father.

The various emanations of the One, totaling thirty in number (or 365, according to Basilides), are called Aeons.

Among them exist Jesus (who resides close to the Father) and the lowest emanation, Sophia (wisdom), whose fall results in the creation of the material world.

They have three properties that make them especially useful: Modularity - They allow computations to be composed from simpler computations and separate the combination strategy from the actual computations being performed. Flexibility - They allow functional programs to be much more adaptable than equivalent programs written without monads. This is because the monad distills the computational strategy into a single place instead of requiring it be distributed throughout the entire program. Isolation - They can be used to create imperative-style computational structures which remain safely isolated from the main body of the functional program. This is useful for incorporating side-effects (such as I/O) and state (which violates referential transparency) into a pure functional language like Haskell. Prevalent in Haskell because it only allows pure functions, that is functions that do not have side effects. The typical monad introduction will tell you that monads are all about sneaking side effects into this model so you can do I/O. But that’s just one application. Monads are really about composing functions, as we’ll see.

Among them exist Jesus (who resides close to the Father) and the lowest emanation, Sophia (wisdom), whose fall results in the creation of the material world. The Monad is a monarchy with nothing above it. It is he who exists as God and Father of everything, the invisible One who is above everything, who exists as incorruption, which is in the pure light into which no eye can look. “He is the invisible Spirit, of whom it is not right to think of him as a god, or something similar. For he is more than a god, since there is nothing above him, for no one lords it over him. For he does not exist in something inferior to him, since everything exists in him. For it is he who establishes himself. He is eternal, since he does not need anything. For he is total perfection.
