Super-luminous particles, such as the Tachyon, should be seen as a possibility for further advancement of our understanding of how the universe or even the Multiverse functions. Due to the particle's imaginary mass and the lack of detection, Tachyons have been identified as a ‘hypothetical’ or ‘exotic’ particle. This classification is not based upon their Quantum Spin. This new class of particle, “imaginary ions” or “iions”, consists of all particles associated with a imaginary Quantum Spin, such as the Tachyon and its corresponding anti-particle. This document will discuss and break down the classification of Tachyons as well as the numerous components of these magnificent particles while also traveling down into the rabbit hole of the quantum mechanical universe to the exotic branches of the physical realm.
