An important distinction

Negative sensation is, by definition, negative or bad; causing negative sensation is not. Sensations are qualified according to how our brains interpret them on the negative/positive scale, while anthropogenic causality is qualified according to the rationality scale.

Updated 7/8/12: These terms may be confusing and misleading. Think of this dichotomy, instead, in terms of the pain/pleasure and irrationality/rationality scales.
