Abstract

It is well known that quantum correlations are not only more disciplined (and hence stronger) compared to classical correlations, but they are more disciplined in a mathematically very precise sense. This raises an important physical question: What is responsible for making quantum correlations so much more disciplined? Here we explain the observed discipline of quantum correlations by identifying the symmetries of our physical space with those of a parallelized 7-sphere. We substantiate this identification by proving that any quantum correlation can be understood as a classical, local-realistic correlation among a set of points of a parallelized 7-sphere.
