English ‘I see’ often means the same as ‘I understand'”. Mahmoud, who might be termed the leading Terran expert on Martians, explains that it also means, “to drink” and “a hundred other English words, words which we think of as antithetical concepts. It means ‘fear,’ it means ‘love,’ it means ‘hate’—proper hate, for by the Martian ‘map’ you cannot hate anything unless you grok it, understand it so thoroughly that you merge with it and it merges with you—then you can hate it. But this implies that you love it, too, and cherish it and would not have it otherwise. Martian hate is an emotion so black that the nearest human equivalent could only be called mild distaste. The human cliché ‘This hurts me worse than it does you’ has a distinctly Martian flavor. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science and it means as little to us as color does to a blind man.
Martians continued to praise and cherish the people they had destroyed. All that groks is God. Earthling terms, but can be associated with various literal meanings such as “water”, “to drink”, “life”, or “to live”, and had a much more profound figurative meaning that is hard for terrestrial culture to understand because of its assumption of a singular reality. According to the book, drinking water is a central focus on Mars, where it is scarce. Martians use the merging of their bodies with water as a simple example or symbol of how two entities can combine to create a new reality greater than the sum of its parts.
The water becomes part of the drinker, and the drinker part of the water. Things that once had separate realities become entangled in the same experiences, goals, history, and purpose. Heinlein describes Martian words as “guttural” and “jarring”. Martian speech is described as sounding “like a bullfrog fighting a cat”.
In his later afterword to the story, Tenn says Heinlein considered such influence “very possible”. Only different internal states of hardware. It’s a shame programmers don’t grok that better. When you claim to “grok” some knowledge or technique, you are asserting that you have not merely learned it in a detached instrumental way but that it has become part of you, part of your identity. LISP is to claim that you have deeply entered the world-view and spirit of the language, with the implication that it has transformed your view of programming. The entry existed in the very earliest forms of the Jargon File, dating from the early 1980s.
