Idea means—what something looks like.  Appearances are never deceiving, insofar as an appearance is an appearance of and not an appearance to.  But this is out of balance.  If the difference between appearance and essence is a function of perception, then we end up with Hegel and Nietzsche and oblivion.  The difference that appears between appearance and reality must belong in some way both to perception and appearance.
