Leibniz uses garden, plant and animal metaphors to illustrate this (§§, ). While every monad is different (§), operating like organic matter (§§ –) or germinating seeds (§), its nature is representative, and is thus a mirror of the universe as a whole. As such the individual monads are connected directly to God, ‘who is the cause of this correspondence between their phenomena’, and thus are indirectly connected to one another.
