Definition
most extreme as in final, best, worst, most important, or most fundamental
The exact meaning of ultimate depends upon its context. For example:
  • "the ultimate decision-maker" — the final
  • "the ultimate car" — the best
  • "the ultimate insult" — the worst
  • "the ultimate source" — original or most fundamental
  • "the ultimate sacrifice" — most extreme
  • Rooted in our tradition, some of us felt that to be abandoned by humanity then was not the ultimate.
