Tachyon:
A  theoretical particle, or wave which travels faster than the speed of light. Tachyons exist in a theoretical world where objects have negative mass and time goes backwards. Tachyon energy is used to scan "subspace", among other things,  on the sci-fi fantasy program, Star Trek Voyager. So far, there is no empirical evidence for the existence of tachyons. "If they do exist, tachyons would be extremely difficult to utilize under our current understanding of physics," says NASA scientist Tom Bridgman. Despite being theoretical and, if real, difficult to utilize, and if utilized, of unknown value, tachyons are the main ingredient in a feature line of New Age products that range from beads, belts and shoe inserts, to sweatbands, power pillows, massage oils and vials of tachyon water.  A few enterprising New Agers claim that they know tachyons exist and they have harnessed its power.

1) The Christian doctrine that God is a trinity of persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit -- the Triune God  This doctrine is the result of a compromise between two opposing factions at the fourth century Nicean Council.  Hence the conflicting elements within it  According to this doctrine the three are separate "persons", yet they are not three gods and not three beings.  They are three distinct persons; yet, they are all the one God.   They are in absolute perfect harmony consisting of one substance. They are coeternal, coequal, and copowerful. If any one of the three were removed, there would be no God. This doctrine is poorly supported in scripture. 2) New Age explanation: There is only one God.  All that exists is an expression of this one God.  The physical universe is God's body.  The astral universe is God's soul and the eternal spirit is God.
