From an Ni ego-state, you want to understand the assumptions of a system of representation before you use the system, so that you can use it with true freedom--including the freedom to use the built-in interpretations in ways that violate those assumptions.
Extraverted Intuition seems to be about forming a larger context based on specific experiences and their emerging relations to one another.
In essence, we first create a context by inferring generalities from consistent behavior between related components.
Ne Ne is like web of information, storage of knowledge and every bit of the data is

Anyone can see that this picture is a myriad of abstract ideas. Looks like pure craziness but would have started off as an idea and was built upon. If you can decipher meaning from this, you've good Ne.
Slight correction: if you can see all the possibilities off of this, that's Ne. Deciphering meaning of any sort would be Ni.
