No, changing a property of a receiver by a transmitter is only half
of what is needed for communication, as I pointed out in my other
post you also need a standard to measure the receiver's change against.
You need to know not only the state your receiver is in now but what state
it would be in if the transmitter had done nothing, without that there can
be no message. Quantum mechanics can cause the change but can't
provide the standard, so there is no communication, just noise.
