A modeling formalism is proposed for the description and study of living and life-like systems. It provides an abstract conceptual model framework for real life and evolution of biological organisms. It is proposed, that this model formalism provides a novel system view and immediately applicable conceptual tools for understanding real life and evolution of biological organisms. The modeling principle is very generic, suggesting that it can be directly applied also to the study of engineered and artificial systems.
