Which level is it?

I’m sitting in the living room. All of a sudden I feel thirsty. I get up, go into the kitchen, go to a cabinet next to the sink, open it, take out a glass, close the cabinet door, move to the sink, run some water into the glass, close the faucet, drink the water, set the glass in the sink, and return to the living room.

Hmm. Lots of controlled variables in there. Lots of perceptions and behaviors, too. What level of the hierarchy would you say this little story represents. Is it an event? Is it a sequence? A program? Or is it a system for quenching thirst? I’m curious.
