Hi, I am a string theorist and a publicist.

BTW I hope that what I wrote above seems consistent to what you've heard from Moshe Rozali - and, hopefully, an extension in some respects. That's because I believe that we have to offer the same treatment of things like two electrons in two wells. ;-) If you see some discrepancy between the two of us, I would like to see it. Thanks, twistor.

The locality in QFT is totally exact, so you won't have even an infinitesimal probability to transfer a "little bit of information" along spacelike intervals of spacetime. Any apparent result that this is possible either pretends that some measurement may be done more accurately than it can, or it pretends that global measurements may be done locally, or does other mistakes. BTW in EPR-entangled pairs, one also transfers exactly 0 information because we can't "order" even our particle how it should be measured. But this double-well case isn't even entangled in any useful sense. It's not EPR.

Thanks for your interest, twistor. You're exactly right. The inaccuracy of the total energy may be seen in "subtly different" ways, depending on the procedure. An apparatus that doesn't see the other well has to "cut" its vicinity in some way, and this creates an uncertainty. Alternatively, we may detect the electron in the first well and then measure the energy exactly, taking both wells into account. Then we will find out that the odds are exactly 50% and 50% for $E_1,E_2$ but we need to make a global measurement.

comment Poisson structure on moduli space of CFTs
The extra structures exist in supersymmetric CFTs and they're consequences of supersymmetry (which makes these moduli spaces complex, hyper Kahler etc.). If you take the most generic (bosonic) CFTs, I think that the Zamoldochikov metric is the only structure of this type.
