Hmmm… You *are* using this (phi* psi ) to generate probabilities, right? After all , that’s generally what one does with “amplitudes”; squares them and turns them into probabilities. Maybe you need a different terminology if that’s not what you’re going for.
As for “reality”, I meant “ontic”; complex/real is a totally different issue from ontic/epistemic. After all, Im(phi), Re(phi), Im(psi) and Re(psi) are all “mathematically real” fields. Are *those* fields ontic? If you’re not familiar with the ontic/epistemic distinction in this context, perhaps start here: http://arxiv.org/abs/0706.2661 .
