the expression "I am only an egg" refers to Robert A. Heinlein's legendary
"Stranger on a Strange Land".  so does the word "grok", which I assume is
even more unfamiliar to you, both as a concept and as a word.  it was first
published in 1961.  at that time I was _literally_ only an egg, but that is
not what the expression refers to.
