The following claim is simply not true:

"In other words, almost all complex data-structures in Lisp are ultimately implemented in terms of lists."

Arrays in lisp are not lists.

Structures in lisp are not lists.

Strings in lisp are not lists.

CLOS objects are not lists.

I urge you to cut this.
