As one between two massive powers I live
Whom neutrality cannot save
Nor occupation cheer.

Succeeds in turn, and ushers in the night,
Whose wings, outstretched and shadowy, descend,
And in nocturnal mantle robes the scene.

In science:

Although we do not ascribe any vev directly to the neutral components of the RH-triplets in 126H ⊕ 126H, we will find that once a vev is assigned to the neutral component of the RH-doublet in 16H, the triplet vev is automatically induced.

In particular, cross-field currents in emerging structures are destroyed by ion-neutral collisions, and the magnetic field lines are able to slip through the neutral gas during emergence.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
Traditionally, the diffuse neutral ISM is known to exist in two thermal equilibrium states: the cold neutral medium (CNM) and the warm neutral medium (WNM; McKee & Ostriker 1977; Wolfire et al. 2003).
Galaxy evolution begins at home: GALFA, EVLA, and GASKAP
First, does a good fit to the predictions of a simple neutral model imply that all of its highly restrictive assumptions must be satisfied? Conversely, does a departure from the predictions of a neutral theory imply that selection must be operating? In this work, we will argue that the answer to both questions is ‘no’.

The question when a semiring has an additively or multiplicatively neutral element is answered in Section 7, where we also state the complete classification of finite simple semirings with an additively neutral element.
Finite simple additively idempotent semirings
By Proposition 2.21, if (M, +) has no neutral element then Rx = M for all x ∈ M \ {∞M }, and if (M, +) has a neutral element u = 0M then Rx = M for all x ∈ M \ {0M, ∞M } and 0M ∈ R0M .
Finite simple additively idempotent semirings
When considering finite simple additively idempotent semirings with an additively neutral element, any finite idempotent irreducible semimodule over such a semiring has a neutral element by Proposition 2.23, and thus satisfies (∗).
Finite simple additively idempotent semirings
From the results in this section it also follows that the existence of a multiplicatively neutral element implies the existence of an additively neutral element, for all semirings in Theorem 5.2, Theorem 5.3, and Theorem 5.4.
