*Let's simplify the model. Instead of a Nitrogen molecule, consider a free electron at rest in some frame. Its only degree of freedom is spin IIUC. Is it your claim that this electron become entangled with its environment via its spin WF, which is a superposition of UP and DN? Does this spin WF participate in the entanglement? TIA, AG*
The electron's spin dof can only become entangled with the environment by an interaction with the environment.
