Is the connection due to persistance? 
So given a data structure is persistant across operations, let's say a
stack. Suppose if two threads are working with the same instance of a
data structure. One thread pushes a value onto the stack, the other
does not. Due to persistance the other thread's instance of the stack
is unaffected?
