Quantum Mechanics is $U(1)$ invariant, hence $X$ is isotropic?

    Since our fundamental laws are invariant under rotations. Hence, we say that spacetime isotropic.

    Now Quantum Mechanics is invariant under (global) complex rotations ($U(1)$ transformations. Hence, we say that $X$ is isotropic.

    In other words, what is the correct analogous space $X$ here and is "isotropic" the correct term used?
