    First you start with existence.

    i.e. existence exists. This is to say nothing of the nature of existance, just that it is. And know this: Existence is all that exists, nothing can exist outside existence therefore nothing can create existence.

    I think the next axiom is: A is A

    This is not to say anything of the nature of A, just that A can't suddenly be a B.

    ...and you just keep going from there.
