Some say that there are parts but their properties depend on the whole. But if we cannot assign properties to the 'parts' of an entangled system, what can it be to be a 'part' or any kind of entity in the first place? Can we say that there are parts but that they are not independent? What can 'part' mean in this situation? Please assume that I know as much quantum mechanics and philosophy of same as you. If not, I will ask for clarification, but I am fairly well educated in them. Yet, still I am puzzled by it all. Alas.
