    started real space

    (of course that may eventually want to be disambiguated, but maybe for the moment it’s okay)

    Added some examples related to the conjugation involution. Actually, I would prefer to call a real space a *-space. This terminology is used for *-ring, *-vector space etc. Although in that setting, * has some connotation of anti-linearity.

    Yes, “real space” is not good terminology. But as so often with bad terminology, it is quite standard.

    Of course one may still add discussion of what better terminology there could be. Maybe in a hundred years everybody switches to nLab terminology!
