Do you mean to imply that you don't grok "grok"?? (That's what I grokked
from your question.)
Your education has been shamefully deficient. Robert Heinlein coined the
word for use in his novel 'Stranger in a Strange Land'.
Wikipedia has a fairly good description, but a very -short-, simplified
description is that it means that you understand not just the words somebody
used, but what they _really_meant_ by that language. Do you grok it now?
Anybody who lived through the Charlie Mason murders got a complete
introduction to this concept. That book was a basis for a chunk of
What was also discussed in that book was the ultimate method of groking
somebody was to eat them. Not many people want to discuss cannabalism. But
that was implicit (and done) in that novel.
Which is a little too harsh a form of groking for most folks. Robert
Heinlein made it clear that he was not promoting eating people and you did
not have to chew on somebody to grok them. I guess you could say that the
groking we know and love today is the politcally correct version.
Which makes perfect sense. We all know that Larry is so..o..o..o..
politically correct. LOL
By the way, the reason why I know so much about this novel is we studied it
in a contemporary american literature class. But I always like science
fiction and had read ALL the science fiction books in my small town library
