Hi John, First thanks for the complement on my post!
To address your points. Of course we do have some knowledge of reality. We have to have to be able to function within it which we most certainly do to varying degrees of competence. That is proof we do have sufficient knowledge of reality to function within it. Yes, computations include logic as well as math.
