You access them *all the time*. They are the *only* thing you access.
But if you want... pointer = lambda x: return x

I am not using "pointer" as language-specific terminology, I am using it
as *the* name of the concept we are talking about. The Java and .NET
runtimes *don't* use that terminology, but they still *actually* have
pointers, in the same way that Python does.
