## Main Question or Discussion Point

Can a function be defined such that for a complex argument z = x + iy, the function will uniquely map z onto the real number line? I have a hunch that this would not be possible, but if such a function existed, it could be used to define a unique ordering of the complex numbers without the need for lexicographic ordering, which is not as useful as I would like.
