My experience over the years concerning nuclear hexagrams is that they mirror or reflects what the I Ching is responding, to example when questioned about something that has to do whit my home, anything, now and then I've had that specific hexagram ( Hex. 37 I've had several times when asking such matters) as nuclear hexagram.
In my danish translation of Stephen Karchers book "The I Ching - plain and simple," he mentions the nuclear hexagram as being a Hidden possibility.

Somehow this is a question and somehow not, as I've had that experience so many times that I'm almost (but not fully) convinced that it could be the case ie that the nuclear hexagram mirror what I Ching is responding on... but the question could as well be: has any other had that experience?

I really got into Karcher's stuff about nuclear trigrams. I liked the idea of grouping hexagrams together according to their shared nuclear hexagram, and then seeing what the underlying theme was for those four hexagrams. Also his thing about the four second-generation nuclear trigrams, which, by some odd, random chance coincidence are 1, 2, 63, 64, the Gates.

And ya, I've also had an experience doing a reading for someone where the nuclear hexagram was 37. The question was related to problems with home repairs, a legal and financial issue -- but with 37, we explored the idea that maybe it was interpersonal issues within the family unit that were the core issue. Hmm. I guess "hidden possibility" works. Although you could also say "unexamined" or "unacknowledged assumptions."

One of my doubts could be, that if the nuclear hexagram responds to the inquiry then it would be given beforehand that to example:
hex. 28, 43 and 44 will always find their mirrors, or what I Ching is responding on, in hex. 1. (and thereby the question arises why other hexagrams shouldn't find I Chings response in hex. 1 )
On the other hand, I had so many times seen the nuclear hexagram reflecting my inquiry that it just made me wonder.
But this doesn't hinder that what I Ching reflects also is a hidden possibility...
I appreciate your kind reply!

I like the nuclear hexagrams and think they can provide good additional insight into a reading.

I have come to see them as the deep energetic inspiration behind the time of the question. I don't think that the nuclear hexagram responds to our enquiry more that our enquiry is responding to the deep calling of the nuclear. This core calling that emanates from the primal flow that comes from and dances through the 'gates' of 1, 2 , 63 and 64.

For me they are almost the reason (the inspirational core power behind) why this situation that you have decided to ask about has come into your world. In the high and low pressures of any energetic field there is a natural ebb and flow. The nuclear energies ebb and flow directing you towards having a choice to experience a 'new way'. The 'new way' in it's essence is Change. It may be a way that has been shown to you before but not accepted or recognised and so the challenge is there to be met again. The gauntlet is thrown down for each of us from the depths of the primal flow: "Is this the time you will accept this change within you?"; "Is this the time that you will learn or understand this wisdom?" The accepting of this challenge, this time could well be the 'Hidden Possibility'.

As an example, maybe the challenge in a situation that has been inspired by a nuclear Hex 40 is one of recognising or finding the ability in ourselves to show compassion and forgiveness. These could well be the 'unacknowledged' or the 'unexamined' that resides within us that is being invited to take up full residence.

It's late here, and I'll try to dive into your reply when being more kind of awake. Thank You! (I mean, just passing through messages and emails before bedtime)

And that all of the hexagrams core's ends up in these four hexagrams, the two first and the two last in the whole arrangement could make one suspect that the one who arranged the hexagrams this way, in the so-called king Wen order, had an eye on the nuclear-hexagram-phenomena...

Last year I worked with the nuclear hexagrams but in an attempt to fit them into a seasonal Order. I never finished it so the attached file is more like a draft. The four "Gate hexagrams" (1,2,63,64) are placed in column A and the rest as briefly described. Maybe if I got time I'll continue this project. And I admit, it's a bit far out.....

The deeper energies of any situation pass through those 4 gates no matter what. Whether King Wen had one eye on these gates or anything else when he arranged the sequence I think matters not.

All of the nuclear hexagrams - lower, middle or higher - are a function of the line progressions in each hexagram and I can't see how the hexagram sequence has any influence on the formation of any nuclear hexagram.

Neither can I. My post #6 were more like if this is an utter coincidence (that all of the nuclear/mutual/interlocking hexagrams ends up in those four hexagrams) "what a coincidence !". I remember having seen Harmen Meskers video about nuclear hexagrams and where he hasn't been able to track the use of nuclear hexagrams that far back as to the time of king Wen (don't remember how far he traced them back in time)

The Core hexagrams. Hex. 1 is the core of 43,28,44. Hex. 43 is the core of 32,34,50,14 etc. The numbering is those according to the King Wan arrangement.
(Se attachment - which is actually a Draft - on posting #7 for the special system in the numbering)

Feel free to download and print this Hexagram Guide with the Core hexagrams in parenthesis.

PS: I'll be pleased, should it had happened that numberings have found their wrong ways into this scheme, then to be informed. Thank You
Add 0n: Would I publish such a Hexagram-key-Scheme if it weren't right? Off cause not, but my experience from back when I programmed in Basic (Yes, the old programming language from the early eighties) learned me that even how sure I was putting things in the right way still small failures pupped up again and again. And off cause I have checked that the nuclear (Core/Mutual) hexagram belonging to each Hexagram is OK. I have also added the new Hexagram key to my
Journal pdf.
