The fact that's the header is the word "grok" - which I don't
personally understand - is a different level of issues: in my case,
it's because I'm french, but it could be that it's not in my
vocabulary because I grew up in the bostonian high society, and this
is a slang or too casual word my parents never used.
To understand, to grasp conceptually. 
From Robert Heinlein's "Stranger in a Strange Land."
