In Hilbert's metamathematics, "concrete, intuitive"
representations of numbers correspond with your
"numerals-as-strokes", that is,


1
11
111
...


His argument to get from these well-ordered sequences
of marks, representing numbers according to an ordinal
construction, to a notion of cardinality is based upon
the symmetric permutation groups.

Now, one may use modern reasoning to claim that the
combinatorial group theory one might associate with
universal algebra is logically more sound than the
group theory that arose from geometric considerations,
but that is historically inaccurate and fundamentally
dishonest.

So, if one wishes to view the situation through
group theory, one has cyclic groups and the symmetric
groups associated with them.

Now, I am too stupid to know what you mean by finite.

That is, you have just declared cyclic processes to be
equivalent to infinite processes.

In support of your remarks, Albrecht has written that
numbers count themselves. But, they do not really.
Numbers can be distinguished from one another by a
sequence of representations that are inscriptionally
distinct. But to correspond with a count -- that is,
to have a cardinality -- requires something more.

You never really get around to explaining that much.
