As G. A. Radvansky et al. (2001) indicate situation modelling is the fundamental way in which texts or descriptions are animated by humans, made more than strings of words, a process basic to human narrative understanding, building upon the ‘the surface form, [and] the propositional textbase’ through layers of orientation using an implicit range of comparators: Finally, the situation model represents the events described by a text. It represents what the text is about, not the text itself. The creation of an accurate situation model is the main goal of comprehension and is what needs to be retained in memory if the knowledge is to be useful later.

Interestingly, applied to such contexts is the notion of a narrative consciousness, both individual and collective that Walter R. Fisher (1987) deployed in seeking to displace the rational, reasoning core that underpinned the term of homo sapiens based as it is on concepts of wisdom and rationality.
