Well, do we *know* objects directly, or do we just think we know them?
If ideas are derived from two sources - sense perception and reflection, and all knowledge is restricted to ideas..then that would mean that we do not really know objects or things, but rather we develop ideas around what we think they are.
Reality would be basically unknowable to us.
I tend to think that we have an ability to know the universe directly.
Edit: Which doesn't actually relate that much to the original post, now that I think about it..
