You failed the challenge that you were given. Specifically, your code is not
measurably faster on the problem that I set. Moreover, you continued to
write as if you had not failed and, worse, went on to give even more awful
advice as if your credibility had not just been destroyed.

No, you cannot. That is precisely why you just failed this challenge.

You should accept the fact that Mathematica currently has these
insurmountable limitations.
