Before Mass began on the Feast of the Holy Trinity, the priest expressed that if he could explain the Trinity, he would write a book.

I realize any human conception to explain the mystery of the Trinity will fail on some level - though, I do appreciate this mans query. It is an interesting thing to ponder, for a few. :-)

Does Quantum Mechanics Provide an Analogy for the Trinity?

I think it's very, very wrong. He seems to be arguing for almost an accidental identity among the three Persons, or for a denial of the real distinction among them.

Again, I do understand the failure on some levels. The unique persons of the Trinity is undeniable.

Yet, the 'Double Slit Experiment' can offer a satisfiable notion {to a partial degree} on how when we attempt to observe one person of the Trinity the others are not viewable. From OUR perceived view.

I do realize one weakness of attempting to utilize the 'Double Slit Experiment' is God would not alter/change in anyway - whether it be by observation, or anything.

All ad extra actions of the Trinity are actions of all three Persons. That's why (for example) attempts to baptize in the name of the Creator and of the Redeemer and of the Sanctifier fail--the actions don't specify the Persons.

If what he's doing is a complicated version of the principle of appropriations, then he's going about it the hard way.

Yes. This may be the case.

This individual’s strength clearly resides in the scientific field and not theology. Yet his attempt to draw from his field to reconcile a dogma {he Assent to} may offer a few interesting concepts. I find worth pondering. Yet mostly, I appreciate his effort.

I'm so dumb, I don't even understand how a topic about the Trinity turned into geography. :wave
