MissingAxioms

About

Missing Axioms is a series of essays starting with outlines of the concepts: implicit value(s), explicit value(s), authenticity, imposter nihilism and the embodied dilemma.

These notions are then carried on a journey through various sources, the goal of which is to investigate the ethical implications of individual emanation of explicit and implicit value(s). The result casts dispersions on our commonly conceived notions of authenticity, culminating in the ultimately authentic creative act of death: martyrdom.

Missing Axioms is an experiment in getting something done. It has no long-term plan, simply a deadline. It might not be the best written, most coherent or inspiring but it is something. Which is infinitely better than nothing.

Fate only rewards those who show up.
