comment About the complex nature of the wave function?
I edited my question removing the reprints and trying to state my problem without them.. it will take some time to think about some points you made in the answer already, though.

comment About the complex nature of the wave function?
thanks for answering. I have one question, not knowing about Feynman path integrals yet, I take it that what you are saying is the same thing as: if we make the transformation $\psi(r,t) = e^{i\frac{S(r,t)}{\hbar}}$ then the Schrodinger equation reduces to the classical hamilton Jacobi equations (if terms containing $i$ and $\hbar$ were negligible)?

dear pcr, you forgot a factor of $\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}$ in the first line.
