The idea of a Trinity is not exclusively a Christian one, it can be found in many ancient religions. For example, Hindus have the three, Brahman,
Vishnu, and Shiva, which are all a part of Brahma, the one; ancient Mesopotamia had Ea (or Enki), Ellil (or Enlil), and Anu as their trinity;
Egyptians worshipped Re or Ra as the source & creator god, as well as Ra-Atum (the setting sun), Ra-Khepri (the rising sun), and Ra-Harachte (the
risen morning sun) which were all a part of Ra.
As for whether or not it can exist, I don't see why not. I consist of flesh, bones, and blood, but the combination of those separate elements make
up my one body. Even water, the source of all life, is a combination of 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom, but those 3 smaller parts, when added
together, create 1 molecule of water.
The body and water are only simple examples of how it is possible to have 3 in 1, so I hope you can see what I'm getting at.
I think the concept comes from the fact that nearly everything in nature consists of a masculine part, a feminine part, and their offspring. The sum
of these 3 elements equals one whole cycle. It follows then, that the Creator of this process must also share these qualities. My own belief
of what God is, also follows this pattern. I believe that It consists of the consciousness (masculine), potential (feminine), and creation
(offspring), which is why people are said to be created in God's image and are called the sons of God. Another way of saying it would be, the
universe, and everything in it, is the Observer's Observation being brought into existance.
