On the basis of acknowledged quantum facts it is argued that the quantum state is extended in four spatial dimensions in a 4D space interpenetrating our 3D space. The notion of branes is borrowed from M/String Theory to conceptualize the spatial arrangement. Euclidean spacetime is reinterpreted as the spatial geometry of the 4-brane, with "imaginary time" reinterpreted as the fourth (imaginary) spatial dimension. The imaginary axis of the quantum state is identified as its fourth spatial dimension, yielding a natural union of Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics and the emergence of time. Spatial properties are shown to explain quantum nonlocality, while time in the 3-brane emerges from motion of or through the imaginary dimension in the 4-brane. A consciousness-model is introduced which conforms to the spatial configuration while providing mechanisms for resolution of the Measurement Problem.
