I will try to answer for Bruno as I think I understand what he means. The
number is equal to the number of entities that have a first person
experience. The point here is that each entity can only experience their
own. The notion of a 3rd person experience can only consider the evidence
that such exists, for example I cannot "prove" that you have a 1st person
experience to myself or any one else. My own 1st person experience it
incontrovertible to me and me alone.
