Brain in a vat and the idea of creating heaven

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brain_in_a_vat

The brain in a vat is certainly a largely interesting idea in philosophy. I like the idea of creating heaven through applying the brain in a vat in the literal sense. Like cryogenics, sort of. In cryogenics, you pay some people to freeze your dead body until the technology to revive you is discovered. In my idea, your brain is removed from your dead body, and wired to a virtual reality of heaven, creating a matrix of it. And there will be other dead people's brains wired to it. Like living in an MMORPG, in a world without hunger, tiredness, geography, politics or war. Though it relies heavily on human nature.

The brain in a vat is about as interesting as the Allegory of the Cave. Which is to say it isn't, but philosophy undergrads and basement dwelling teenagers who read Wikipedia articles love masturbating over it, because they just heard about it.

That applies to half of this forum. The thread is intended to be more focused on the idea of creating heaven than the brain in a vat theory, though I didn't communicate that well in the OP.

It's an idiotic idea that has no basis in reality (much like cryonics - no, not cryogenics, that one is a legitimate science).
