Think about it this way. Axioms are not the basis for our thoughts and reasoning. Axioms are labels for the visceral feelings that form the basis for our thoughts and reasoning. Without the experience that develops those visceral feelings, there are no axioms. An axiom is a statement that we intuitively feel to be true. The sense of logic cannot exist without that and for logic to really take off requires very deep feelings. You seem to be thinking more along the lines of how we thought in the 80?s with languages like LISP. That *thinking* was just logic. LISP turned out to be nothing but a logic calculator.
