LISP and symbols

3  x^ 3 + 4 x^2 + 1

the 'x doesnt stand FOR ANYTHING


^^^^^

CB: This could get to be funny, but 

Ok: "x" is a something. 

 It is being used to stand for nothing.

Something is not nothing. 

Therefore nothing is being represented by something that it is not.

Therefore "x" is being used symbolically when it is used to represent
nothing.
