The original thread (the REPL) and the new thread share the input port.
When you type something at the REPL either the REPL *or* the new thread
will read it. If the thread reads it, nothing happens. If the
REPL reads it it gets evaluated as usual.

If the REPL reads part of an expression and the threads read some


         (open-input-string "This is read by the thread")])
   (thread (lambda ()
     (display (read)))))
