Wow - wow - wow - wow. What do you expect us to do with that dump?

All you need is THIS THREAD.

Keep it simple. Don't need to kill a fly with a thermonuclear device.

Totally normal. Mavericks seems to aggressively cache disk data in memory, when it's unused by applications.

It's normal. Stop worrying about it. Apple's OS engineers are a lot smarter about RAM than you (or any of us). The system manages RAM. You don't have to.
