Explain the word, as you know it.
Those who don't know it, do not look it up. Go read the book, Stranger in a Strange land by Heinlein. No cheating, as you cannot get the meaning from
Wiki or some such.
Do you Grok? Do I?
Explain what it means to Grok.
Could you kiss a girl, and ONLY think about that kiss? That kiss is the ONLY thing in the world?
All these years, and I'm still trying to understand how the human psyche works.
I could not kiss a girl and only think and concentrate on that kiss. Sorry, I would have to think about other things.
Heinlein was onto something there.
I still, do not understand the concept of grokking. I try.
I fail, most times.
Empathy, on a most empathetic level.
I'm not searching for Utopia. Just a better world. Slightly better.
Forgive me if my thoughts are a bit of a rant. Or a rave(not the new wave drug addled kind of rave, this ain't no Electric Daisy Carnival).
There is something to my addled rant. I know it. I just can't put it all into words.
I Grok some ideas. I don't necessarily, Grok, humanity.
Yeah, there's some problem there. I sure as hell don't Grok ..........
After reading this, I'm not sure if I Grok myself. Pretty sure I haven't, ever, Grokked myself.
If you halfway understand my ramblings, then three and a half(eh, maybe more) gold stars. I usually do small paragraphs. I failed this time.
