Tractatus 2.01231

2.01231 In order to know an object, I must know not its external but all its internal qualities

A mysterious remark. What kind of distinction is Witt. trying to make here? What is an external quality of an object? What is an internal quality of an object? Why did the previous remark require this further clarification?
