Hello New World Encyclopedia,

I think we might have a lot in common considering your vast knowledge of the Trinity. I hope you will find that my Trinity research compliments your own.

I believe that God is one in spirit, and universal in mind, but threefold in personality. Each of these persons is conscious of himself as part of one consciousness unified in conscience and reason, but having the personality prerogative of freewill within the bounds of necessary Trinity cooperation. The will of each person of the Trinity is not identical, but is integrated in a procession of exquisite “perichoresis” or dancing around of Trinity coordination, forever supporting their divine union in One God. Theoretically, each could walk away with his portion of the kingdom, as the Quran puts it, but they don’t because of the catastrophic consequences of such a disintegration, as well as the overwhelming goodness of their systematic unity.

Please take a look at my new book “The Trinity Absolute: a Constructive Interpretation of World Religions and a Metaphysical Blueprint for Peace” currently previewing on the web at

The thesis is that Muslims worship only the first person of the Trinity, i.e. the Deity Absolute Primogenitor. Christians and some Hindus worship the first person through the second person, i.e. the Universe Absolute Supreme Being or Oversoul. And many Hindus and some Buddhists venerate the synthesis of the first and second persons in a third person, i.e. the Unconditioned Absolute Spirit of All That Is.

It is argued that world religions reflect the systematic unity of One God in Trinity manifestations, which become almost universal when you consider that some flavours of Buddhism, Confucian-Taoism, and other major religions seem to be psychological permutations or combinations of the first three – all just different personality perspectives on the same God.

It is argued that that a spark of that one spirit of Trinity indwells the soul of all humans, together with a small portion of the universal mind, and a personal will or character. The human soul is thus modelled on the Trinity as its only adequate metaphysical vehicle, but in a “perichoresis” or dance of the psychological coordinates of consciousness – the threefold human soul – personality/mind/spirit.

If the purpose of life is to find God and be like him, then the way to do the will of God is to let him live your life with you, helping fuse your personality and spirit in your immortal soul. That immortality may be achieved through participation in the Universe Absolute Oversoul, of which Jesus Christ seems to be the head representative. At the same time, in considering this Universe Supreme Being, Muslims would insist on including Muhammad, and Hindus might suggest Gandhi, etc. At the supposed spirit level of the universe, we can speculate that the corresponding supreme leaders might be Michael, Gabriel, and some unidentified angel(s).

Similarly and likewise, Allah, Abba (or Father, as Jesus called him), and Brahma may be regarded as a representation of the first person of the Trinity Absolute in three major world religions – Islam, Christianity, and Hinduism – with hybrid psychologies represented by Buddha, Confucius, and others.

My questions are: Do you see how closely the psychology of the major religions maps onto the Trinity Absolute, as I have described it? What do you think of religious pluralism? Can I not still be a good Christian without being exclusive?
