At least according to Tim Anderson Ph.D who wrote the paper in Physics Review.

What do you make of this?

"The paper simply presents, mathematically, why a fifth dimension makes sense in a quantum theory.

The basic idea is that the universe has a fifth dimension, but we can’t ordinarily detect the dimension, not because everything is exactly the same, but because, when we make measurements of anything, we only perceive either an average or random value.

If this is true, it would mean that rather than being random, quantum mechanics is simply the result of classical motion in a largely invisible dimension.

Let’s look at an analogy: imagine a sealed box of gas. The box of gas is in equilibrium, so its state does not change with time. When we put a barometer or a thermometer into the box, it always reads the same value, e.g., 1 atmosphere and 20 degrees Celsius. Nevertheless, all the individual gas molecules in the box are in constant motion. So it is changing in time, but we cannot perceive that change because we are so large we can only measure the averages which never change.

It is the same in quantum mechanics. Our universe changes not only in time but in this fifth dimension."
