After a permeable core reaches a certain level of flux density.... just
If you increase the current in the windings any more.. the core produces the
ie Increase in flux causing reduction in permeability.
This represents "negative permeability" something like negative resistance.
Say if there's one winding driving another via this hypothetical core.
If drive winding input is reduced output from secondary actually increases!!
and vice versa.
If a high Q drive winding is pulsed in the one direction and additional
flux bias to core is supplied from an external magnet it may start to
oscillate on it's own.
Take a look at this video clip www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGOFNrlVm1Q called
See the effect.......not bad huh?

In a classical sense, and are core conductor can't saturate.
saturation is a property of a ferromagnetic core material:
after a certain point the lines of mag force get too
many to 'fit' in the core, the core 'saturates'.
Air 'core' does not have this property, tho it also needs
physically larger for same inductance, and is more
simple as to its frequency response.
