Computer Science Existentialism

This quote from an interview with Van Jacobson made me quiver.
"Also, we use buffer memory in such a way that it’s valuable only if it’s empty, because otherwise it doesn’t serve as a buffer. What we do is try to forget what we learned as soon as we possibly can; we have to do that to make our buffer memory empty."
