That experiment is disgusting and I can't believe that you see nothing wrong with this. You should be ashamed of your immoral and naturally grown human mind.
Could you imagine you brain being placed in a jar and hooked up to a computer so that you may play a game for the remainder of your pitiful, lonely, confused life? If you could call such a thing a life?
If humanity as a whole cannot see the problem here and cannot refrain from commiting such atrocities then it should not be sentient. It should not be given the ability to do such evil.
If the cells are capable of keeping an aircraft level and on a constant heading, then it is obviously capable of thought.
I have stated my case. If you believe that brain cells which are capable of doing ANYTHING are absolutly not self-aware and cannot possibly have emotion, you're a liar. If you think the possibility is so small that it is worth the risk to possibly gain whatever there is to gain from this, then I question your morality.
I can obviously do no more to change anyones mind so I rest my case. Think about this with your brain, not with your desire for technological advancment.
