No. In mathematics an axiom is merely a working hypotheses, a "mathematical statement that serves as a starting point from which other statements are logically derived."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axiom

Any coherent mathematical statement (or it's converse) may be taken as an axiom. Of course, having "made it happen", you must then honestly "deal with the consequences", per James Tanton
http://gdaymath.com/about/

As I see it, YOU have two problems. You haven't been able to express your ideas coherently (and lash out at anyone and everyone making an attempt to clarify), and you aren't willing to deal with the (mathematical) consequences-- for instance, that if you can divide by 0 then you haven't got a field.
