The observer effect can still effect (I had to) information, just not
information with any pushing power--but this is not needed for
communication.  If, because fatalism hold true, the entangled qubits produce
an informational response within the brain, that same response can be
predicted given a standard-ish "mental language."  I may not be able to
cause a particle to spin, but I think many (Especially you, John) would
agree that "I" can not cause my hands to move or a sentence to form, given
causality.  We are already energic outbursts of little bits and bots trying
to wiggle their way back to entropy, formed only by the motion of energy
through us like an electron transport chain.  The brain makes decisions and
THEN we interpret them; this is fact; this has been tested using fMRI.
Extension to another observational medium can't be too hard.
