Not necessarily true. The evaluation of


requires that g(x) be evaluated, before f()  can be evaluated.

There are datatypes that (by definition) impose a particular ordering
on their processing. Take a list. in order to access the Nth item one
needs to get the tail of the list and then acces its N-1st item. The
Nth item is the head of the N-1st tail in this processing.

Also, a child cannot be born before its parents are born.

Functional programming can only describe and reflect structure.
Whenever this structure is sequential by nature, parallel processing
isn't directly applicable.
