In this paper I take as an experimental hypothesis the idea that all religions are true. The problem would be how to pack all those religious truths into the same universe: What would the universe have to be shaped like to contain them all? Given two implications that flow from the uniqueness and unity of the universe - 1. if God exists, he is in the universe; and 2. we can see things indirectly - it makes good sense to attempt to see God. Though there may not be enough room in space for the divine, there may well be room enough in time. Fraser's evolutionary universe with its hierarchy of temporal umwelts provides plenty of ways for the divine to appear in different guises. Contemporary cosmology and computational physics suggest that the universe can best be considered as made of information, engaged in computation of its own future states. If this is true, it is constituted of three warring computational systems: a timeless but unreal Bohm quantum computer, a massively parallel but badly damaged Turing machine with considerable degrees of freedom, and a genetic-algorithm ensemble of fast self-progamming computers (sentient life). These make up the emergent tricameral mind of God.
