hereby suggested a model in which files are never stored on any disk or medium anymore, but forever kept in transit, i.e. network interfaces configured such that every incoming packet gets forwarded and sent out again without ever being stored. a network of hosts to be configured to reflect files in such a way.
files may at all times be extracted from this transient non-storage, and played, processed, whatever. yet they never are stored anywhere.
if no prior art exists, these here lines constitute it.
