So I've been thinking about slave/exertion/object Ne for a while, and it seems to me like something very difficult to quantify except in relation to its partner, Si. While you might call a declaration of war, or being in the state of one master Si (negative), the actual pursuit of war and the activity of conflict is slave Si. To understand the relationship between slave Si and slave Ne, consider the case of the atom bomb. In 1923 a student approached Einstein about the possibility of using his special theory of relativity as the basis for an atomic fission weapon. Einstein disparaged the possibility then. Yet in 1939 he wrote a letter to FDR stating that the creation of such a weapon was indeed possible. For two decades, perhaps longer, the possibility of a super-weapon had floated about the subconscious of the physics community, ever present and ever repressed save in the minds of a few. At the very least, there were some German physicists who understood the possibility of such a weapon, or else the S.S. would not have embarked upon its creation. It was this very act which spurned Einstein, in concert with the physics community at large, to action. The presence of war had allowed the realization of the possibility of an atom bomb: negative Si set into practice proved the proper grounds for the emergence of negative Ne into the real world.
