In this paper essential aspects of block-oriented world viewing are emphasized and presented in a relation to simulation models of systems managed by complex and sophisticated decision rules. The construction of such models can be essentially simplified when one combines the agent-oriented, object-oriented and block- oriented paradigms of programming. The use of the described way leads to certain paradoxical relations among computing agents. Some applications are added.
