Manifest Destiny was a philosophy prevalent in the 1800's in America, 
that it was fore-ordained by God that the United States was destined to 
eventually settle and incorporate territory from the Atlantic to the 
Pacific.  It was going to happen, it was right and just that it happen, 
and all it would take was time and a little American perseverance.

Never mind those pesky Plains Indians^WNative Americans.  How important, 
really, are the ancestral homelands and beliefs of a bunch of "savages" 
when compared to God's Plan for America?

So it's a play on words: Manifest Density vs. Manifest Destiny.
