Axes of a complex sphere
The axes for a complex circle are real and imaginary.

What is the other axis needed to construct a complex sphere?

What do you mean by "complex circle"?

My "complex circle" is a unit circle in the complex plane, centered at (0, 0). I believe there is a more appropriate, conventional term for it.

Likewise, the "complex sphere" is centered at (0, 0, 0), with a unit circle as above represented in the x and y plane for z=0, but is that third axis typically real or imaginary?
