Abstract : The paper deals with a particular type of a projective ring plane defined over the ring of double numbers over Galois fields, R {\otimes}q \equiv GFq \otimes GFq \cong GFqx-xx-1. The plane is endowed with q^2 + q + 1^2 points-lines and there are q + 1^2 points-lines incident with any line-point. As R {\otimes}q features two maximal ideals, the neighbour relation is not an equivalence relation, i. e. the sets of neighbour points to two distant points overlap. Given a point of the plane, there are 2qq+1 neighbour points to it. These form two disjoint, equally-populated families under the reduction modulo either of the ideals. The points of the first family merge with the image of the point in question, while the points of the other family go in a one-to-one fashion to the remaining qq + 1 points of the associated ordinary Galois projective plane of order q. The families swap their roles when switching from one ideal to the other, which can be regarded as a remarkable, finite algebraic geometrical manifestation-representation of the principle of complementarity. Possible domains of application of this finding in quantum physics, physical chemistry and neurophysiology are briefly mentioned.
