An objective reason for imaginary numbers within an artist theory of 'time' as a physical process
In this theory the imaginary numbers represent part of the geometry of a dynamic process that forms the three dimensions of space and the continuum of time or Arrow of Time. This is a process of continuous energy exchange or what I like to call continuous creation formed by the spontaneous absorption and emission of light waves.
In this theory the imaginary numbers are at right angles to the standard number line because electric fields are always at right angles to magnetic fields in a process of permanent flux forming the continuously changing world of our everyday life.
The light photon of quantum mechanics is the carrier of the electromagnetic force that forms the movement of positive and negative charge with the flow of electromagnetic fields.
We see and feel this process of continuous change as the flow of time. In this theory time is an emergent property with the future continuously coming into existence light photon by light photon with each new photon electron coupling or dipole moment.
This is a non-linear theory of time with an Arrow of Time or time line from the past into the future for each object or individual within their own reference frame.
I believe this is what we are seeing when we see an artist at work we are seeing new light photon oscillations or vibrations continuously coming into existence relative to the actions of the artist, a continuous flow of cause and effect. We have free will because the wave particle duality of light is acting like the bits or zeros and ones of a computer. This forms an interactive process continuously forming a blank canvas that we can interact with turning the possible into the actual! This theory explains a greater reality of one creative principle behind the laws of physics forming something like the sounding board of a musical instrument that resonates with the vibrations of one's own thoughts, efforts and actions!
Everything forms its own future spacetime by slowing up the rate that time flows. This is called (time dilation) and is relative to our own energy and momentum.
This can be seen mathematically because multiplying by the imaginary number i forms a rotation in space and time forming the curvature of spacetime. This represents a process of spherical 4π symmetry forming and breaking. When the spherical symmetry is broken it forms spiral 2π symmetry in the form of the Riemann surface rises up out of the complex plane forming a spiral pattern. Each time we go around the origin 2πi cylindrical symmetry has to be added and we find ourselves on another sheet of the complex plane.
This process forms the three dimensional space of our everyday life with a past we can never change and a future that is always uncertain!
There will always be uncertainty at the quantum level and in our everyday life because the imaginary number i is the square root of -1 representing the rotational symmetry 2π that maintains the quantum wave particle function Ψ or probability function at t = 0. The t = 0 represents 'the moment of now' for each object or life form within their own reference frame.
In this theory the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics represents the physics of 'time' as a physical process. The probability of quantum mechanics that is represented mathematically by Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle ∆×∆p ≥ h/4π is the same uncertainty we have with any future event within our own reference frame.
