The idea of a number means letting it float away in your mind and knowing that it will still be there when you come back with things to count, and knowing at the same time that a number can exist nowhere but in your mind.  Whatever you’re counting is real —  it may very well be touchable, unless you’re counting something like the dreams you’ve had since Monday.   But numbers are not real; they’re an idea.  Abstract numbers are a little like bubbles.  If you look at them too long, they’re gone.  You have to trust that they’re still there, even — especially — that they exist at all.
