z = a + i b ……here ‘a’ is called the real part and ‘b’ the imaginary part. The beauty of this formalism is that we can do all sorts of arithmetical jugglery with ‘ z ’ as if it is just one variable but it carries with it two concepts simultaneously – that of the real ‘a’ and that of the unreal or imaginary ‘b’. And this is exactly what Scrhödinger used to integrate the duality of QM. He carried the ‘particle’ concept of matter as the real part and the ‘wave’ concept as the imaginary part of the Complex Number and instead of ‘ z ’ called the variable ‘ψ ’, the Greek letter ‘psi’. (looks like the trishul doesn’t it !) . This was one of the major breakthroughs of early 20th century science and the entire basis of semiconductors and subsequent electronic revolution is based on this synthesis.
Now to sum up….to my mind the Sanskrit language is this and much more the – ( A ) is like √-1, a symbol that stands for an undeterminable quantity ; ( h ) for the imaginary part and ( ma ) for the real part. Words like ayam ( Ayama\ ); ātma ( Aa%ma ); idam ( [dma\ ); adah ( Ad: ) etc… seem to be framed on the same lines, with the same type of coding.
