Python: Dictionaries

Python dictionaries are data structures organized as a collection of key and value pairs. These mapping objects are hash table implementations with 0(1) retrieval. Keys act as unique references to their associated values. Dictionaries store values to blocks of memory, which are directly accessed by key.

It builds upon the concepts of balance, persistence, and relativity, but not symmetry or equality in the...

Like most things, it depends on how one earns it and subsequently wields it. Typically, power results from exerting control over an environment or by decreasing the power of others.
