Is there a verb that means you understand something so well that this something becomes part of you, your nature, your essence?
The closest I've found is grok but I don't like the word for two reasons:
- The meaning of the word I'm looking for and the meaning of grok are similar, but still different.
- I don't like the etymology of the word (which is a dumb reason for not choosing to use a particular word, but that's just how I am).
Any help is appreciated.
