In this case, the statement is referring to
your methodology of interpreting crayon marks
as standing in representation of natural numbers.
The point is that talk of "aims" and "goals" in
making your crayon marks means that your representations
are, in fact, your intention to make crayon marks.
And, as pointed out to you in other posts, authorial
intentions are problematic, and, therefore, rejected
in semantic theories that apply to mathematics.
