Both statements point at the same phenomenon (have the same denotation)
but may generate different emotional overtones, subjective interpretations,
socio-cultural values, and ideological assumptions in humans reading them
(have different connotations).

Extropians should learn to avoid the connotational traps, so they can
infect the optimum number of humans with their extropian ideas.

Caveat infector.
