Solar active region NOAA 12673 produced numerous abnormally large solar flares including X9.3. The reason for how those solar flares were triggered, however, remains unclear. This letter, in specific, is intended to determine the underlying nature of how and why solar flares occurred by studying active region NOAA 12673. Having used several methods, we derived some shocking conclusions.
