One aspect or kind of semiotics is cognitive: it (hopefully) identifies dependencies between our ways of thinking about various things, like for example how the way we think about James Bond stems from the way we think about the glory of the British empire or whatever. The important part is that the dependencies that it identifies are causal dependencies — i.e. that the way that we think about x is the cause of the way that we think about y.
Another aspect or kind of semiotics is phenomenological: it (hopefully) identifies mereological or analogical relations between what our experience of various things constitutes in, like for example how the experience of pondering James Bond is partly constituted by an experience of pondering the glory of the British empire. The important part is that the dependencies that it identifies are mereological dependencies — i.e. that our experience of y is partly constituted by an experience of x.

“Intuitive person” vs. “analytic person”: some people understand examples better than definitions, and communicate more aptly through examples than through definitions.
“Life has no meaning” vs. “leading a meaningful life”: it looks to me like the feelings that evoke proclamations of meaninglesness or meaningfulness have to do with the absence or presence of a dense network of points of reference to process one’s experiences in relation to — like, the more you have lots of things you’re inclined to compare and contrast your experiences or things around you with, the less you have feelings of meaninglesness.
