Provide the ability to create / use thought templates
This will allow the user to more rapidly create common (for them) thoughts and thought hierarchies.
The thought template would allow specification of standard display settings, type setting, tags, labels, and even standard child, jump, or parent thoughts.
When a new thought is created, the user will have the additional option of selecting a template to use when generating the thought(s). However, if the default option is sufficient they need do nothing more than what is currently done.
It would be nice to be able to specify the default thought template.

I would add that it would be good to incorporate the template with thought types. When a user creates a thought type now, the brain activates the type thought. If the user could add template thoughts/notes/tags at this time, it would seem ideal to me.

I would add to this to auto format the Notes section creating essentially a form. An example would be a brain cook book. Every thought will be a recipe but depending on the type of recipe (say a drink vs main dish) it would preset the list. Drink recipes have glasses, Mains have a cook and prep time. So that all you need to do is fill in the blanks not reinvent the wheel or copy-paste-erase-fill from another thought.
I had a similar thought, using template Brains that could easily be Merged into the current file at the current location.
