Abstract

By systematically examining the tree of possibilities for electronic computing architectures and offering arguments that allow us to prune suboptimal branches of this tree, we come to the conclusion that electronic circuit planes interconnected optically according to regular connection patterns, represents an alternative which is reasonably close to the best possible as defined by physical limitations. Thus we propose that this foundation architecture should provide a basis for future research and development in this area.
