Yes, this explanation makes a lot of sense to me.

Hello Stefan, Robbin, everyone,

This is a very interesting observation.  I've noticed that I can listen to music, in fact very challenging music, when I program (one kind of writing) but not when I write in a natural language.  It's interesting to see this potential link.

Writing "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow...." uses one part of the brain while writing the following uses another?  :-)

public static void main() {
   printf("Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow\n");
