Of that I am not sure. One would need to work this out in terms of the
of quantum nonlocality.

The question I would ask is this.

Suppose we consider the structure or meaning St(A) of a system A as
consisting of the set of
patterns that can be observed in A

After A and B have interacted, in what sense is B contained in St(A). If
some transform
Tr(B) of B is contained in St(A), what is the nature of the transform Tr?

This needs to be answered in terms of the mathematics of quantum theory. A
more elegant algebraic
answer may be gotten out of answering this question in terms of the full
Standard Model (weak + strong
+QM) because this has a richer algebraic structure.
