The state of a particle changes when viewed

Only if particles are viewed, do they conform to a non-quantum state. And when viewed, the light governs the state of the particle, as if the particle was a class, with a boolean property, normal state = yes, or normal-state = no (quantum).

So the primary principle which governs particles is light, but how can light be fast enough to change the state of two particles existing in seperate spaces, trillions of miles apart? I therefore expand that these two points (in non-normal state) must exist as one, and space as a whole is like one MASSIVE container. So how does matter behave outside of this container. If matter past through the boundaries of space fabric, would it still exist?, could it exist? and is matter limited to the boundaries of space?

Sounds like you're talking about uncertainty principle.

Or perhaps in this case the container is always and only where matter (or energy) is or has been, and therefore matter can never cross its boundary, because the boundary is defined by matter.
