To understand profoundly through intuition or empathy.
av Eibro 4. oktober 2003
Taken from the book 'Stranger in a Strange Land,' literally meaning 'to drink' but taken to mean 'understanding.' Often used by programmers and other assorted geeks.

1. Martain word meaning literally, 'to drink'.
2. Also 'love', 'hate', and much more. To grok means to understand and empathize with something or someone to the extent that the object or person becomes part of ones' sense self.
3. To become one with.
I grok water.
I grok God.
I grok Jill.

To grok life, love, and God, this is a noble goal
