I read what other people have to say about it. I also talk to people who understand it better than I do, to see if they can "break it down". I think due to a certain ADD-ness, this is a common problem for ENTP's, not that we're incapable of understanding just that it's so difficult to focus on something really complex.
Oh, also, I have to do it myself before I get it.

I'm actually really curious to hear some of the responses. I think right now I'm sort of in the mode of trying to figure out a consistent and efficient way that I can rely on, rather than relying on some of my INTP traits. I think INTJ's are actually some of the best at this, although I fear their methods are too personalized and thus wouldn't necessarily be generalized too well.
My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.
