The conformal compactification is supposed to belong to the projective space so we still identify points along the rays (equivalence classes under scaling) $$(u,v,x_i)\sim \lambda (u,v,x_i), \quad \lambda \neq 0$$ Then there is the quadric equation you wrote down – an equation that respects the identification above – so both added variables $u,v$ are pretty ...
