There is no non-locality by the Kochen-Specker Theorem

I meant to say 'It's a straightforward consequence of the ontology of H being the same as the ontology of H'' in the previous post 

An electron doesn't have a value of the Kochen-Specker observable before it's measured. The observable is represented by a linear operator in a Hilbert space H'. The same is true for the observable: location. Therefore, an electron doesn't have a location before it's measured/observed/located/collapsed. 

If two particles in the singlet state are represented by a vector in a Hilbert space, then the two particles are not within space (or spacetime) as defined in the measuring apparatus' terms. In this case, their correlation is not non-local, because non-locality is a notion in the terms of the measuring apparatus'  space/spacetime.
