We compare the absence of the conformal fixed point in the near-conformal gauge theory paradigm with the alternate hypothesis where a complex conjugate pair of conformal fixed points drives the slow scale-dependence (walking) of the renormalized gauge coupling. The complex conformal fixed points would control the scale-dependent anomalous dimensions and the EFT of Goldstone pions coupled to the emergent light scalar, perhaps the dilaton of scale symmetry breaking.
