What is the origin of the name "Grok"?

Just curious what how this talk of "Grok" started. Was it something that was made up or is there a story behind it?

I think on the MDA site it says that Grok is non-gendered, but he certainly looks male to me! :-)

Gotcha. Well then, I'm not sure! I honestly think it might just be something MDA made up...

Unfortunately, the female counterpart in current use seems to be "Grokette" (bleah)

thanks but I know what he is supposed to represent. I was curious why the name Grok was invented and if it meant anything.

I've always assumed the name Grok was chosen for the Primal Blueprint mascot, because A) it just sounds like a caveman name and B) the word 'grok,' invented by Robert A. Heinlein, means roughly: "the deepest level of knowledge...knowledge that transcends intellect."

Heinlein coined the term "grok" in his classic "Stranger in a Strange Land." There was also a flesh-eating aspect to grokking in the book.

This "grokking" can be thought of in terms of Paleolithic man's apparently intrinsic, deep knowledge of what was good for him -- without the benefit of science, books, studies, etc.

Grok it?
