Abstract: The article reviews a hierarchy of generalized nets, which represents sufficiently in details the processes in the world modeled by us and the related to the mental process of the intelligent agents populating it. The model set out in such a way enables to observe simultaneously in each position the behavior of the agents, the mutual relationship between an agent and an environment and among the agents themselves. In wider depth of the hierarchy it can be seen the change in the condition of the agents, the evaluation and analysis of the events in every moment, the alteration in the rules for action, switching over the context, etc.
