Can non-materialism do better and if so how?

Yes, by using the mathematical theory of self-reference. The only problem is that eventually matter has to be redefined through coherence conditions on machine's dreams/computations. The details of this explains that the knower (Bp & p) makes sense thanks to incompleteness which makes both Bp and (Bp & p) equivalent, (they prove the same arithmetical sentences) but not provably so by the machine, and this makes it obeying to a knowledge logic, unlike provability which obeys a belief logic.
