The paper outlines a preliminary logical investigation of a data retrieval system in which word bits are handled in parallel and in which the interrogation plan is not constrained to conform necessarily to a preordained set of interrogation keys. Although the system is generally described, attention is focused primarily upon the heart of the system, a comparator unit whose purpose is to extract from the larger body of stored data that which is germane to any specific set of interrogation criteria. Since the treatment is not oriented in the direction of any unique usage, the approach is quite general and, furthermore, does not extend into electronic packaging or circuiting. Author
