You just have to learn binary, then learn how shift registers & memoryworks, as well as the physics of it so you can imagine the electrons moving around like you’d imagine parts in a machine. Then you learn about logic gates, I took a digital logic class and aced it because i looked it all up already, did learn you can’t leave any pins floating though. And then from there, you watch a video on youtube calles ‘how computers add numbers, in 10 easysteps’ or something like that, repeat until it’s understood how logic gates can perform mathmatical operations.
