  1. Lisp is a programming language known for treating code and data as interchangeable, a concept called homoiconicity, allowing for unique expression within the language.
  2. By translating Lisp expressions into Python constructs like function calls and lists, programmers can maintain the essence of Lisp in a more familiar syntax.
  3. Incorporating features like lambdas in Python, inspired by Lisp, provides the ability to define and call functions recursively, essential for creating Turing complete languages.
