Will probably be using this to attempt full article rewrites in stages, rather than screwing up articles!

Starting rewrite of Nonlocality:

A physical theory exhibits non-locality if it allows separated systems to influence each other without transmitting information between them. An example of such a theory is quantum mechanics, which is widely accepted to have displayed such behaviour [1] although such acceptance is not ubiquitous. This non-local behaviour in quantum mechanics has found use in the fields of quantum cryptography and quantum teleportation, but its uses in computation appear limited.[2]
