Two given particles will not necessarily be entangled with the same other
particles, unless they are entangled with each other. Since their quantum
state is important in their configuration, and describing their state
accurately is impossible without considering entanglement, doesnt it follow
that they are not therefore the same? I suppose I am assuming a realist
