The argument continues: the natural orders of the world would still possess their irrevocable general validity if there were no God. Independent of a relationship to God the structures of existence would have to be recognizable as the proper order of being.

5 If one examines customary language usage in this sense, then it is soon discovered that the word "God" appears to signify something unsurpassable or perhaps an unsurpassable Something: God can do everything. God decides everything. God effects everything. God is everything, has always been all in all. Yet, God is still "more" than "all" There is nothing so great that God is not greater. There is nothing so definitive that it could not still be made into a problem by God. God himself is indefinable: "God cannot be defined "6 That is because he is the ultimate and highest instance, even in a logical sense.
In the language event, the being of some content is expressed in language in such a way that it addresses the being of a person and summons that person out of himself through the word which addresses him, and in the word which addresses him that person is brought to himself or perhaps divorced from himself. In the language event what happens is that a person is drawn together into the word and there, 'outside of himself (extra se), he comes to himself in the other word. If one then considers what the word "God" connotes within the horizon of this language function, then the word "God" will certainly be regarded not only as a 'sign' (signum) by means of which an idea enters consciousness or a thing is conceptualized.
