I think this "elderly newbie" may have misposted. I came across 'glark' 
while looking up the meaning of 'grok'.

OT: Re: What do you want for DTL 0.2
You really should read "Stranger in a Strange World." It is a really good book that deals with 
religion, sense of self, and other things. Before I read it, I started thinking of what if all the 
religions were correct and if all the religions had a place in heaven or if we humans created our 
own place in the after life. Well, it wasn't that sorted out but after reading the book, the 
solution of what I was thinking about at the time became clear. I highly doubt the writer actually 
believes in his ideology. It is really interesting in the amount of ideas in it. I can't say I 
understand or grok everything in the book but it makes you think long after you read it. Changes 
your perspective on somethings and maybe opens your mind to other ideas. Could debate and talk it 
about forever but it has been a long time since I have read it (about two years).

In the book, it lists different literal meanings and I was sure one of them was "to eat". It was 
listed on Dictionary.com that it is literally, "To drink," I don't know where it is in the text so 
I'm not going to search for it on if I'm right or wrong. Just means to understand something to the 
fullest or ponder some topic to comprehension.

Fascinating .. I've tended to be more of an engineer that a scientist. Have 
you have further thoughts on those kind of spiritual matters?  Getting 
closer to being able to "grok" everything? :-)

Perhaps continue this thread offline?
