This idea is kinda like using the data portion of a pointer as a pointer itself.  And its in use on the internet today to match ip addresses or something,  I cant quite think of it.

Hot off the theory plate->

Just imagine if you had this many bits of ram in your computer->
(its around a tri-google.)

If you had that many bits, you could look up a 1024 bit word, the data being the address.

And have a really awesome pattern matching memory.   

a) write the virtual address space.
b) its down to the query system being able to produce n close matches with the exact matches, given so many queries in the entry word.

but its a tree based system, and you have to handle word entry into the spacial division,  so it becomes tricky, if you wanted adapting hardware...
