Hi, I've just finished reading the article "Reality Bits" in the(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

January 25-31, 2014 edition of New Scientist.

These links are introductions for those of you who do not read

Can anybody explain what Dr. Wootters is talking about?

I don't think he is reformulating QM with the mere substitution

of sqrt(-1) for its matrix identity since that would only yield a

notationally equivalent and trivial reformulation and the math

would not change.

But instead, I think Dr. Wooters has a new approach to

avoiding imaginary numbers in QM.

At this point I don't have a clue what Dr. Wooters is proposing

and any incite would be greately appreciated.

EDIT: and some insights would be appreciated too.
