abstract={The paper emphasizes that complex numbers are objects with their equivalents commonly occurring in nature. Just like real numbers measure lengths in a physical world, complex numbers measure vortices observed in nature. The spiral orbits in this paper are exponential spirals (also called logarithmic spirals). A vortex is identified by determining a complex number that generates it. To determine this number, we need two snap-reading observations that provide the argument of a complex number, while the ratio of radiuses – the modulus of a complex number. Therefore, we also deal with the area of a complex number. Complex numbers involve a meaningful description of the laws of nature, i.e. of vortices and of equilibrium.},
