  • I don't have an idea in mind of a being that which is greater cannot be conceived.
  • God is ‘that than which nothing greater can beconceived’.
  • We form a notion of God beginning with theknowledge of less perfect things and raising our mind to the notion of amost perfect being.
  • If we conceived this being, then this being exists inreality, but only in thought.
  • We can reason from existence in thought to existence in reality in one case only. For there is only one being which cannot be thought not to be; namely, the being than which nothing greater can be thought.
