These days, I’m studying artificial intelligence again (especially muliagents). For this, I want to learn LISP, a really nice programming language (wich can also be used as language for web pages).

Spoon Boy: Do not try and bend the list. That’s impossible. Instead . . .
only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Spoon Boy: There is no list.
