The Lego Theory:

What if subatomic particles exist in 5 to 10 dimensions, but for some unknown reason, the can only stack themselves in three dimensions. The complex world(atoms, molecules, etc) would be much simpler than the subatomic world since it would have fewer dimensions. In other words, classical physics would be a sub-union of quantum physics. Heres an analogy that describes it better:

Imagine if you had a box of Lego blocks. Each block has six sides, but it only has connectors on four sides. In other words, you couldn't stack one block on top of another, but you can stack them sideways. Now, if you connect them all together, you just created a two dimensional world out of three dimensional blocks. If these blocks were subatomic particles, and you gave them billions of years, they might create a lifeform. This lifeform would be two dimensional and it wouldn't be able to perceive the third dimension. It would find it easy to understand it's two dimensional world(classical physics), but would find it hard to understand the three dimensional particles(quantum physics) that make up it's two dimensional world.
