A description is first given of the electronic circuitry sufficient and necessary to imitate the action and optical functions of a phase conjugate hologram in the two dimensions of the Euclidean plane. An explanation is then given of its derivation from the underlying principles of UK patent No. GB 2 199 976 (automatic pattern recognition), and of its spatiotemporal (hypercube) applications in neural network form using the phenomena of superconductivity, the genetic code, and a simple geometrical solution of the traveling salesman problem as examples. The presentation includes a discussion of the degree of phase coherence which would be necessary to construct an artificial brain based on a dynamic holographic structure.
