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.
