Existence ITSELF Is A Fact Which We Label "1".

So, what we call math is a logic of ANY existence. It does not have to be an object, it may be a rule, or a concept, or a time, for example. ANYTHING which can exist may immediately be labeled as "1" versus absence (non-existence) labeled as "0".

So, there is only ONE axiom required to make math valid:

1. Something exists.

Everything else follows by labeling existence of this something by 1 and non-existence by 0.

Actually even less than one axiom. Nothing has to exist at all (just use one number: 0). So, math can handle stuff even "before it comes to existence".

So, your set of axioms is far too redunant - if something exist, it is already described by math/logic as the number 1 (or "yes" in logic notation). Even if something does NOT exist yet, it is still described by math (0, or "no").
