When designing tests of cognitive ability, it’s important to differentiate between an ingrained magnetic or olfactory sense, such as what insects, turtles, and birds might use to navigate (path integration), and an actual cognitive use of memory, with referential images of migratory paths that passed a favorite fruit tree or seasonal water pan. The ability to treat a representation (a picture of a banana, for example) as if it were the real thing (an actual banana) is required to form a mental simulation, in which inferences are generated from a memory stimulated by the picture.

Santa Claus as we know him today has only existed since the 19th century, and he first slid down the chimney in a 1812 book by Washington Irving.
