    I don't use the word "term" in the OP.
    All the words I used are to be understood on the basis of an English dictionary.
    For example, "logic". What's not to understand?
    Here is the argument again:
    For all we know, A may be the state of some unknown part of B;
    C is determined by the state of some unknown part of B;
    Therefore, for all we know, C may be determined by A
    All the terms such as "state", "determine", "unknown", "part" etc. are to be understood in their ordinary senses as given by an English dictionary.
    A, B and C are to be understood as variables that can stand for and may be substituted with any specific term, such as "wave", "traffic light", "conscious mind" etc.

    I hope this is good enough for you.
