Computer synesthesia?

I just realised something: when I have copied text to paste elsewhere (as I do tens of times every day) I experience the fact that I ‘have’ text as a physical sensation, like I’m actually holding on to an object, which I then release by pasting.

Given how much and how regularly I use a computer it’s in no way surprising that it should have effects on my psychology.
