| There are two spaces for binding variables: lexical and global
| (i.e. special) scopes.

  This will most likely cause further confusion.

| If symbol isn't declared as a special one, then in LET form Lisp will try to
| find binding in lexical scope first, and then, if failed, in global scope.

  Such as this, which is just plain wrong.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
