I heard this recording as "El es absol....", but I was corrected. Oops. "El es" sounds much like "eres" in this recording.

Is 'brillante' used for intelligence as well? I thought one would describe the sun as 'brillante' and a person as 'genial' or 'inteligente'.

he pensado que se describiría 'el sol brillante' y 'la persona genial'

Yes, brillante can be used for intelligence. A great resource for looking up information like this is WordReference. If you don't know about it, try it out! http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=brillante

Yes it can be used for intelligence. But I want to add that the other day I saw the Spanish word brilliante used as "bright" like the English: bright colors, bright light, bright clothing. Saludos.

Thou art absolutely brilliant is informal in English, and Eres is informal in Spanish, it should be accepted.
