An oil filter with that fine of a filter mesh can't flow enough oil for our engines. The finer the filter, the harder it is to push the oil through so it goes through slower. If you put that filter on your motor's filter mount (if it was possible) the oil would bypass the filter entirely sensing too much restriction in the filter and you wouldn't have any filtration at all.
The concept of the bypass is that all the oil still goes through a normal full flow filter but each go-around some of the oil (usually around 10% of flow) is "bypassed" and sent through another filter, the (approx.) 2 micron filter to remove all the smaller particles.
There are some newer filters that are designed as "dual flow" which are supposed to do something like this (although it won't ever be quite as good as a real bypass setup) all in one larger filter body. Search for Donaldson ELF7405, I believe this is the best filter in this category. Short of a full bypass system as I currently have, this is the filter I would use and feel pretty good doing so.
