This almost suggests the monads are seperate entities. But, in my 
understanding, since they are each reflections of the One, the human 
monad can also be looked at as a unity. 
Wry may be more familiar with the concept of a consciousness stream, 
or river. The water in the river changes as it goes downstream. Yet, 
in a sense, it is also the same water. The purity changes (usually 
for the worst), the scenery changes - yet it is one river. In the 
same way our consciousness changes, from one life to the next, but in 
some ways the content of the consciousness remains the same: dominant 
thought-forms remain, inclinations remain etc.
