I see that TheBrain 12 has added this feature of automatic recognition when you type the name of an existing thought:

Automatic Recognition of Mentions
- When a thought name appears within notes it is recognized automatically.
- Mentions are highlighted and respond to a right-click with a context menu to activate the mentioned thought or convert it to a direct link.
- Mentions utilize intelligent recognition of plural and singular word forms so exact matches are not required.

Related Thought Display in Content Area
- Mentions: Thoughts whose notes contain the name of the active thought even if not explicitly linked.
