Sorry.  I love this stuff.  Do you remember the indiana jones scene where the ninja guy is comming at him with swinging knives... And he just pulls out a gun and shoots him?  That is what great ideas do.

No wonder I wake up with a headache.

Cheers,

Luis.

A scheme that works best for some data doesnt always work best for others.  The real breakthrough will involve an entropy metric that can be used to self optimize a scheme to regions and others other other regions... Setting up a topograhic mapping of compressions as directed by the morphology of that data.  Do that and you can selectively and accurately reduce an image (or any other data set) to more general terms.  For instance, if a filter were able to extract obects (humans, plants, buildings, furnature, infrastructure, land use, animals, equipment) into semantic primitives, it sould describe and store reality the way our brains do while we sleep.  Achieving million-to-one compression ratios.
