Substitute time for J, and amps/t for current. After algebraic manipulation
of the time variable t, the dimension problem has gone away.

It's been done already. i was even surprised to learn (from Jim Black)
that

lightyears = (i) * years

Or, to use your notation,

lightyears = ( 0 + i ) * years


Apparently - this is all standard relativity, almost 100 years old now,
or should I say
that it's almost 1 / (100i) lightyears ago (?)

JESUS.

100 years = 100 / ( 0 + i ) lightyears.



SOMEBODY SPLAP ME.

Well, here's a thought. The standard Minkowski metric is
x^2 + y^2 + z^2 - c^2t^2

so perhaps your formula is better expressed

100 years = 100 / (ic) lightyears

where c is 1 lightyear per year.

If one prefers slightly more manageable units,

100 seconds = 100 / (ic) meters

where c is 299792458 m/s.
