Hello!
Why don't we use indefinite article a in this sentence? It is a thing?!

When we say 'It is thing', we mean 'It is the word thing'. Which means that a noun refers to the name of a thing not to the thing itself.

.
The two words are not related in any way, Rsgarg.

Thing: (noun) an entity that is not named specifically.
Think: (verb) use or exercise the mind or one's power of reason in order to make inferences, decisions, or arrive at a solution or judgments.
