If that's the case the only link I see between this and the complex numbers is that complex infinity sits at the top of the Riemann sphere. I find it hard to believe that a Turkish professor would be referencing the Led Zeppelin song....

Two paths you can go by ... it's perhaps a reference to the proof of the Cauchy-Riemann equations, in which you can approach zero along either the x or y axis. Or perhaps the two paths refer to the proof of the Cauchy integral formula, where traversing the paths in the opposite directions makes everything cancel out. [Goursat proof in Ahlfors]. Other than that, I think the prof is consuming some of those famous Turkish products that the American smuggler was trying to bring home in the movie Midnight Express.
