This is probably why I'm having difficulty in followiwng your
thought. I look at monads per G de Purucker, who defined
it as a consciousness-center which sends out a "ray" or
self-manifestation into the 7 cosmic planes, while remaining
itself in divinity. In this definition, every grain of sand, every
atom, is a manifestation of a monad. The monad is always
self-conscious, but its expressions in space-time may or
may not be.
