This "has" the effect of depressive thinking that everyone around him is far more mindful "then" they in fact are.

I kept two words in double quotes (has and then) in the above sentence . what would happen to meaning of the sentence if I substitute those words with "is" and "Than" respectively.

Kindly advise me

Thank you
