Rather, they combine world model knowledge with more small-scope inspection of local context, analysis of structures and identification of specific micro-units. The development of the cognitive view in AI has been a progression line of discovery in which new levels of analysis have been added to those already in use. 10 But then, what is the status of these lower levels which we have called contextual, structural and monadic?

In general, world views or world models consist of relatively stable routines for actions, such as driving home according to a daily pattern, with built in selective windows for perception.
