The theory you propose is interesting, and provokes much thought; but, are you correct? Something than which a greater cannot be thought exists. I understand you are attempting to prove the existence for God, and I commend you on your attempt; however, I am uncertain that you are taking the correct approach. I encourage you to correct me if I stray from the idea you are trying to convey or if I misunderstand you. I believe that you are trying to say that if God did not exist, we would not, in our limited and finite capacity, be capable of conceiving a being as great as God.

As I became exposed to other monolithic religions, it conflicted with what I learned as I was raised in Japan, the idea of polytheism. In the process of attempting to resolve this conflict within myself of what religion I belong to, and who God(s) is/are, I found that it is impossible to prove whether God(s) do, or does not exist…
