"Do you feel like nobody groks you? Don't worry, Robert A. Heinlein does. In his 1961 best-selling science fiction novel,??Stranger in a Strange Land, Heinlein coined the term to mean an understanding so thorough that "the observer becomes a part of the observed--to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience." But in common usage the term means to communicate sympathetically or to 'drink in' understanding."
Does this inspire any new interpretations?

That's pretty cool! Maybe being like Grok is like groking with our bodies - I think a lot of people feel detached from their own body. They treat it like their car and doctors are mechanics. Paleo/Primal definitely puts you more in touch with your body and how it works than SAD eaters experience, I think. We experiment, we nurture, and our actions toward our own bodies are more deliberate.
