I am.

At1with0 would call "I am" an assumption.

"I am" appears to be an absolute fact that cannot be denied.

I would think so. Awareness being equivalent to existence.

Who, what, where, when, how, why... these are all mutables, to some degree. Perceptions change. Objective reality seems quite mutable also. I cannot claim to know exactly "where" one ends and the other begins but I think it is not a matter of absolutes. I feel I am part of an objective multiplicity, in constant relation with my environment and in some sense it and I are one.

What do you think?

Any conclusion logically derived from the initial "I am" axiom would also be an absolute undeniable fact, in accordance with the rules of deductive logic.

What, like consciousness is the ultimate frame of reference?

On the other hand, just because it is an assumption doesn't mean it's not a fair assumption.
