"No Processes" means, I get threads. (as expected)

The code I posted was just a dirty testing hack.
This code shows, that 5 processes are created under linux.
Or at least I think so. But if a 'ps' gives me 

 PID TTY          TIME CMD
 2543 pts/9    00:00:00 go.py
 2544 pts/9    00:00:00 go.py
 2545 pts/9    00:00:00 go.py
 2546 pts/9    00:00:00 go.py
 2547 pts/9    00:00:00 go.py

they should be processes, right?

What is used if I call start_new_thread()?
Is it a user-level library? If yes, which one?

thx, J
