Maybe he's talking about the actual stairway that goes up a mountain in Hawaii.
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....

I have reviewed the lyrics here ... https://play.google.com/music/previe...gnid=kp-lyrics ... and I can report that I have found no links to complex numbers except for this possibility:
Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
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.
