Maybe they were trying to connect it with human memories, since the
programs within the TRON universe had a life of their own?
With all of thie TRON talk, I just happened to have watched TRON

All three movies seem to have similar storylines...
The first two movies have a mainframe as the big bad computer while
the third uses that idea as a red herring.
