what are some arguments against the idea that we are all just "brains in a vat" and that everything we see is created by computers hooked to our brains?

Humans have been creative far longer than computers have been around.
Be sure to check out External Links at the bottom of those webpages. You can search Google for other articles along those lines.
You can also research some of the most creative people in history, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Thomas Edison.
