They are. It's Pavel Shumilov, Word about Dragon series. (Павел Шумилов, "Слово о Драконе"). The first line of the first book: "So, again: why I can't exist." ("Итак, еще раз: почему я не могу существовать?")
I can't say it's best things written on Russian ever, but it's funny.

In a way I do agree. It's not about calculus, that's really some kind of "recent" development, but still. Rulebook axiom table, though, declare math a part of tech axiom. I don't actually believe it's right, but it's how it's done now.

...and yes, that worked exactly brilliant for people who lived in LL without contact. That's what I meant about "every Axiom meddling with your mind". But, again, Torg very premise insists we're not saying about "pure LL". In-game we have exact situation for "when Axioms collide". Let's imagine an ord who worked in library before is coerced to start again, by some reality-rated scientist for example, who wanted exactly to see what will happen.
It's quite possible, of course, it's when Moment of Crisis happens. But what would happen until it doesn't?
That's what, in my sincere opinion, SHOULD be in rulebook. Not just declaring "it doesn't work", but describing what would exactly happen. I took social axiom because, as I said, for Social Axiom such questions are about the majority of axiom table (everything but, like, two dozens of powers with hard-setted axiom values).
