 Appears  /private/var/vm is used as some type of virtual memory swap disk on MacIntosh's:

Quote

A swapfile is when your computer is running low on memory and it starts storing things on Disk (part of virtual memory). Normally, on Mac OS X, it is located in /private/var/vm/swapfile(#). Swapfiles are also used when you put your computer to sleep (where the contents of your RAM are stored on disk, so if the power runs out, you don't lose your data)

This is a normal part of a Mac and it is not a good idea as it will cause problems with virtual memory. Also, it can not be opened in TextEdit as it will just show gibberish.
