The paper is the result of attempts of the biologist to formulate the logic of evolution of the living for its probable use in Artificial Intelligence, especially for purposes of Evolutionary Computing and Artificial Life. The logic has been fulfilled as the abstract theoretical model, which integrally reflects the universal functional algorithm of evolution of the living. The essence of the method was the invention of an ideal objects (a creative synthetic definitions) that are still absent for a sufficient understanding of evolution. The generalized definitions of the following notions are given:

Endergonic structures; Types of the endergonic structures of order; Information; Complete entropy; Level of organization. Functional intraclosures (organisms, organizations); Criterion of the life evolution direction (Parameter of the comparative evolutionary progress of the structures); Creation; Life; The invariant cognitive cycle;...
