The worst type of Formatory thinking is sneaky and fools people into thinking they are much smarter than they actually are and I see people do it everyday everywhere. That is:
You cannot become brilliant, but just posting and/or quoting another persons brilliant idea. You must derive it from your own inner being and self knowledge, in order for it to be your own brilliance. Then if you happen to read the same thing, the other persons brilliance will become a confirmation to you.
Just reading another person brilliant idea does not make it your own and make you brilliant. It might give you a fleeting moment of the feeling of brilliance, but it is only a spark all dressed up and nowhere to go and not a constant flow of energy. It is like looking for your lost keys to your car under a very well lit lamppost, because the lighting is much better, even though you lost your keys down the block where it was dark. You must learn to create your own light, go back down the street where it is dark to find your keys, no matter how scarey it is.
You must learn how to face the unknown by yourself, not once, not twice, not ten times but regularly and quite frequently forever.
It is not about seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but becoming the light itself.
P.S. To be clear, there is nothing wrong with posting other peoples brilliant ideas, I do it myself, but what I am saying is that, if a person just does that and expects a conscious resuts from it, then they are fooling themselves.
