I think you have missed my point, so I will state it with fewer sentences: Imaginary numbers is an incredibly boring and worthless set, and is only interesting insofar as it is a subset of the field of complex numbers.

Re: Relativistic Lorentz force

But if they're not part of the complex numbers, imaginary numbers are super dumb. They're just real numbers that you aren't allowed to multiply with an extra label at the end. That is when they look like a really artificial structure. C though is super good. And maybe something similar happens with ...

They'd be more analogous to fictitious forces if they only showed up in non-inertial frames, but this is not the case.

There are other options, like being upset in a way that is not horribly sexist? I'm sure there are ways to do this and to correctly scope your response.
