The superultramodern doubt is the principle that ‘anything may be possible’, for that which could otherwise be believed to be absolutely (or 100%) certainly impossible at present could be possible as the intellectual capacities of the believer may be limited. That is, the proposition/s, for example, that are otherwise thought to be absolutely certainly true could be false. The superultramodern doubt is compared and attempted to be shown to be superior to the Cartesian doubt and the idea/proposition that ‘anything is possible’. Furthermore, its implications are stated and discussed, the implications like ‘all axioms as 99.99% certainly true’ and ‘all mathematics as philosophy’.
