The difficulty is this: [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] describes a quantity that cannot be counted out, presumably, one that cannot be counted out in full, a quantity which is denumerable but not enumerable--the counting never comes to a stop.
It was proved in [22] that for a relational structure with a finite signature, this happens just in case E is at most denumerable and can be divided into finitely many blocks such that every permutation of E which preserves each block is an automorphism of R.
