In the intro of chapter 5, it states "In addition, using internal iteration, the Streams API can decide to run your code in parallel". Does this mean even if a sequential stream is used the operations could still be executed in parallel? If so, what happens if there is bad code that uses mutable state? Will the Streams API recognize that and run the code sequentially? Or would it run it in parallel with potentially a race condition occurring?

Thank you,
