Someone awhile back mentioned a few answers seemed to follow a pattern -- such as a movie that came out in 1951 and the last clue from a book in '61 -- looking at '71 I see Clockwork Orange and Andomeda (sp) Strain. Probably nothing there though -- it's just that these "searches" for answers leads one to odd places!

Tell me about it, I couldn't tell you everything I read during the Hunt.

I don't see a pattern or connection except a few red herrings perhaps.

Let's move past the grok and think about it from a different perspective for a while.

what's the difference between; to humans...?
and it is to humans...?
i think the answer should be easy if we tried to figure out what's the difference between those two, since the mod helped us by changing the question .

since my english is not that perfect , can anyone help on this ?

I think it is just claifying the question. As in it's an object rather than a quote or part of a sentence?

to humans... ?

makes me think like its asking what is something or what do humans call something or see something as

it is to humans... ?

seems more introspective. how does a human see or feel about this thing. what makes it human or have a human quality. or what does it mean to us.

I addressed this.

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

I don't think we should keep going like it's all still related to the heinlen book. It could be something else completely. I'm just saying, we need to work from different angles, and if everyone's still working on the heinlen connection, we might not get anywhere.

Found this on the web:

To grok (pronounced GRAHK) something is to understand something so well that it is fully absorbed into oneself. In Robert Heinlein's science-fiction novel of 1961, Stranger in a Strange Land, the word is Martian and literally means "to drink" but metaphorically means "to take it all in," to understand fully, or to "be at one with." Today, grok sometimes is used to include acceptance as well as comprehension - to "dig" or appreciate as well as to know.
As one character from Heinlein's novel says:

'Grok' means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed - to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science - and it means as little to us (because we are from Earth) as color means to a blind man.
In common usage, "Do you grok?" seems close in meaning to "Do you get it?"

So, we had a clue "VMS: to drink?" that spawned an answer "grok". That was the literal intpretation. Now, what if we are being asked in a more metaphorically way how grok relates to humans. From the above example, we see that grok means to take it all in, to absorb. Are we to believe that, since we are so close to the end, that we should absorb or take in everything to this point? According to this, it would seem that grok means everything and nothing at the same time.


Funny word...grok.

Maybe humor is a bit different in Cairo, but here the "anal thing" is getting old.

If you'd like to seriously pursue that route, feel free, but keep it to yourself please.

Some ideas:

it is to humans...?

Suppose that this is the first part of a short sentence:
... that we owe our allegiance.
... that we must [some verb, "give", "say", "offer", etc, etc]

if it's an analogy we should be thinking about something "X". that X should be used by all animals, insects.... maybe plants and object too. while humans do not use "X" they use "Y"
but wtf could be that "Y"!!!!!!
