No, that's not possible. A view function's result should only depend on
the document for which it is called, not on any other states (such as
the database). Otherwise this would yield different results without
changes to the document - these changes could then not be detected
because the view function is only evaluated when a document is

I am not quite sure what you are trying to accomplish, but maybe you can
move the logic you want to implement to the application instead?
