the reason may be that your text doesn't contain a question (mark).
Also in your essay you mix perhaps unnecessary UI complications with python issues and it is not very clear what it is all about.
perhaps drill down to a question on python-level.
lists in python can grow arbitrarily at any time - the memory is the limit. and due to dynamic typing each object in a list can be anything - e.g. another list.
