"This is a position consistent with the philosophy of materialism." should be "This is a position consistent with naive realism."

"The materialist mind recognizes a world that is independent of the interpreting nervous system." should be "The naive realist mind recognizes a world that is independent of the interpreting nervous system."

"It’s important to recognize that there are degrees of materialism..." should be "It’s important to recognize that there are degrees of realism..."

Reasoning: Same as above.
