Abstract

The interdisciplinary study addresses the G$\ddot{o}$del's ontology from the perspective of the mathematical maximality. We first investigate G$\ddot{o}$del's God having all the positive properties as the intersection of ultrafilters in his own ontological proof(1970). Regarding the axiom of choice and his compactness theorem(1930), the next part discusses the ontological meaning of the maximal rather than the maximum in terms of an episteme space. The results show that G$\ddot{o}$del's ontological arguments imply all the existence of the maximal reality, and all the human's epistemological boundedness as well.
