It was by a book with a main character called Valentine Michael Smith VMS

and a definition was in the book for "to drink" in martian language - grok


now trying to see if that has anything to do with "it is to humans... ?"

if the mods changed the question from "to humans" to "it is to human" that means that they are helping us .
we should be focusing on the difference between these 2 questions?????
and what the mods thought when they changed the question?????


anybody have a guess??

not sure if this has been posted, from wikipedia, but it might help us.

"Smith understands the concept of God only as "one who groks", which includes every living person, plant, and animal. This leads him to coin the phrase "Thou art God" and apply it to every human he meets."

I think the ....... at the end suggests the answer is after the clue rather than before if you see what I mean?

ok

either What drinking (grok) "it is to humans"

or

just plain "it is to humans..."

either way, HUMANS in general, not americans, asians, etc... just HUMANS in general

I agree -- staying on course is important -- nothing has been to afar in left field to this point -- it is probably one of those one-word answers -- although how grok was found is pretty amazing!

to humans....


I have tried everything I could think of related to the definition (many variations) grok and what grok is accepted to mean --

so how to humans grok, or in another words how do we assimilate information to become one with the information -- is this the right track?

we were all trying to find quotes about survival made by a helen. (for that, helen said_____). we were searching famous helens (keller, hunt, hayes, gurley brown) and we had hit a dead end so I searched "sci fi helens" and came up with Helen from The Day The Earth Stood Still. The wikipedia entry tells the story and how the phrase "kaatabaakamikalikahimikaheinyho" was given to Helen to stop the robot from destroying the world.

I tried it and it didn't work but another, wiser, player tried a different variation on that expression, which was used in the movie Army of Darkness. The creator of that question used the phrase from AoD which was mangled and resulted in raising the dead. Helen said a slightly different version so the credit, I guess, goes to two of us.

Errr who said anything about winning?

I was answering the guy who asked about how the to drink question was answered.

I posted it only to realise that some one had beaten me to it.

Hence me saying "beaten to it"

Well, the new question seems to be in the form of an analogy.

If we're running on the idea that the latest questions are somehow connected, it would seem that "Grok is to humans..." "as *blank* is to *blank*".
