Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality is also available in text format:

I never expected fan fic to be that good.

A brief comment about subjective experience:

The point of the non-materialist is not that our subjective experience is often reliable; whether or not it is, the point is that there is such a thing as subjective experience. It doesn´t matter here whether experience is a reliable indicator of truth. What matters is that subjective, phenomenal, 1st person experience exists.

And this modest fact, according to the anti-materialist, is enough to refute (strong) materialism (like for example the Mary argument illustrates).
