64-bit Python on 32 Bit Windows?

Is it possible to run 64-bit Python on 32-bit Windows?

I have been working with 32-bit Python, but discovered that I need the extra memory for something. Is it possible to install/use 64-bit PYthon on a 32 bit copy of Windows? I've verified that all of the packages I need are available for 64-bit Python, but I am less familiar with compatibility

I have found various answers to the opposite question (running 32 bit Python on a 64 bit OS) like the following: Python 32-bit development on 64-bit Windows but nothing on this specific question

You can run 32bit applications on 64bit Windows, but not the other way around.
