Thanks for your explanation! So if I'm understanding correctly the only real way to do parallel processing is to have multiple python processes separate from each other. But that means the data used by each process is sort of isolated, right?

Yes, the multiprocessing module provides some tools to exchange this data: docs.python.org/2/library/multipro... but your data needs to be easily serializable which is not always the case.

@antontsvil , I personally think the article is a bit misleading becuase it mixes different details under umbrella terms but @loki already explained what's going on in Python :)
