Level 2 does not necessarily entail 3. There can be something like Buridan's donkey, which works reliably when only one drive is activated.
Level 4: here drives play a further role: they intensify behavior, which lead to the reduction of drives.
Drive/Content/Papineau: through this complexity, it is uncertain what the exact content is, which the drives represent.
