I never thought of it that way where moriarty was just merely richard brook. Thats really interesting as well, I should look that up :3
And as for the fall, I think I found the most reasonable theory.. This is going to be a long theory...
First off, John Watson is forced to stay in a certain position by Sherlock himself. The cyclist (probably part of the "homeless network") bumps into him purposly and causes him to fall, making him unable to see the true evidence of his final death. Also, it seems that Watson does not see Sherlock landing onto the floor, causing his so called "Death" because of the edge of the wall, blocking his view from the street floor.
While Watson is unable to exactly see Sherlock falling onto the pavement,Sherlock falls into the rubbish bin and finds a source of false blood or uses blood bags provided by Molly. Now he uses an old magic trick using the rubber ball to stop his pulse on the wrist, which Watson checks.
Molly comes in when Sherlock's body is replaced and there are false papers confirming that he is dead. A false body is placed into the grave.
It's practically impossible to send a dummy or even a clone off of that building because it is evident that the body is definitely his. There are only a few possiblities in which could have happened. However, what I don't understand is why Sherlock is crying when he is saying his last words to Watson, clearly being aware that he won't die from this jump. Maybe it's to convince Watson to believe his lie about false identity, but I don't think he could see tears from that distance...
And why would he want to convince John that he is false in the first place? Anyways, this is my theory upon his epic escape from death!
This took me 10 mins to type. = =
