Subject:  Re: [Discussgnuradio] Why is fft output complex?

I can't wrap my head around why fft transform of complex signal produces a complex output. After all the output reflects the amount of energy per frequency bin and frequency bins and energy are both real numbers, no?
I'm trying to write a python script to analyze the energy across frequency bins but I don't know where to insert a complex to mag block. I think if I can understand the fft I will know to put the complex to mag.
Thanks
Brad.
