Highly familiar.

However, the whole concept of 'grok' may well be some high plateau Heinlein
barely supplied the map to....

It was kind of a holistic 'to know', and wonderful to use during the hippy
days... especially in the carnal sense....

Might be a good word to bandy about for awhile though.
