Yes numeric is a type under scipy.base

you just need scipy.ndarray

The idea is not not import all the little submodules that make up scipy 
(that way we can change them around in the future should we need to).    
The only modules that should import numeric directly are those that are 
part of  the scipy.base package itself.

All you need to do is import scipy alone

import scipy


is what you want.
