Blank thought spacers *
I would like the option of inserting a blank thought between two heirachial links. This would serve as a spacer between child and a busy parent (example = a particular parent or parents that you dont want cluttering the screen).
A suggested way of implementation...
Type the character * (as a thought name)
* now = a Blank thought
Each new * becomes a unique (blank thought) instance and when entered between new links is in no way associated with previous linkages etc
A * by itself could be reserved as a unique Brain operator and when used to create a blank thought would have a default thought string width of say 7 characters (*) so it is (wide enough) easy to link ( hand and mouse select / interact with) on the Brain user interface. I think this function would be very useful to control the appearance of portions of your Brain as desired.
Additional thought... The blank thought, once created could automatically show the name of the unseen thought that it links to (perhaps shown in brackets to indicate that it is a spacer)
