A mass read–write memory system has been devised based on holographic storage on an erasable and reversible continuous storage medium and pseudorandom electronic selection depending on compounded selection and an internal electrically and light addressable storing matrix array (latrix). This paper discusses the significance to computer design and usage as well as the concepts of the proposed memory. Feasible solutions for all necessary elements were found, and some of their key aspects are considered in detail in the following three papers.
