Imaginary Transcendental Numbers

p i and -p i are examples of imaginary transcendental numbers in both positive and negative directions.

The corresponding psychological number structures relate to the substructures of the early point level. The task at this stage is to try and relate both the line and the circle in terms of projected fantasy. In other words there is a phenomenal element (representing the linear level) and an instinctive element (representing the circular level). Confusion arises - especially in the earlier phases of this stage - from separating the phenomena involved from their unconscious origins.

Just, as at the complementary superstructure level (of "real" structures) there is still some overlap of affective and cognitive modes. Thus we are still able to identify projections which attach to intellectual ideas and those which attach more directly to sense and emotion.
