I find myself wondering in two diff worlds, like most do. My "real" life that includes occupation, money, future, "status", then my spiritual side, and man is it tough to keep a balance. I feel torn between 2 worlds sometimes and not sure if a true balance is possible, dont think this is what you meant but this is what i first thought of.
ill stop here and see where the discusion goes...

What reason is there for it other then to get new ideas? What else is wondering for?

Wandering in imagination is different. That can be used for idle relaxation and refreshment or rejuvenation. Wandering in imagination can also help with decision making, like trying on a pair of shoes before you by them. And sometimes, it's the closest we come to experiencing what we, for whatever reason, can't in this reality.

I know when I wonder, I am looking for new ideas (inspiration) or am receiving inspiration if I find myself in a state of wonderment. Maybe it is a form of wandering/wondering in the realms of spirit/imagination for all the reasons I gave.

Curiosity is tied into this somewhere. Now that is an interesting word. It's like the vortice that pulls you in to states of wonderment.

What I want to know is, where does curiosity come from? What starts IT up?

I don't know, maybe you should wonder about why you should or shouldn't?

If we aren't wondering, then what are we doing? Is that what we should be doing instead? Maybe its that we should be doing and not be wondering about what we should be doing?

How do we know what to be doing if we are not wondering about it first?

Can one never be in wonderment? If so where are they?

HaaaHaaaa....!  Humble much....? 
If you did know everything, you wouldn't have to apollogize, and you wouldn't have to proclaim it....  :wink: 

You are also assuming that no body else "knows everything"....  :tongue:

I wonder, is there ANYTHING you don't know...?    For instance, do you know me....?    :lol:
