Of course it would! Not only would, but it already does every moment! We call it games.. they are nothing more than limitations (rules) to possible action. And brains consider this fun, not only acting withing those limitations but overcoming them (evolving).. just see how much success mmorpgs have..
More specifically to the limitation mentioned, I bet we would find that some emotions are impossible(in fact, thats the rules` role) when you are able to detach your `brain` from your body at will.
Then, I ask you, aren`t we already inside a transhuman game?
