Autogenesis is an abstract theory of living systems and their evolution, recently developed by the authors. It is proposed that replication-an imperfect copying of a functional information, directed by the same information-characterizes the living organization. Autogenesis is the evolution of replicative systems, where replicative information develops, compartments are formed, and eventually an end state is reached. In this paper we introduce a computer model, the aim of which is to show the predicted phases and phenomena of autogenesis in a nontrivial way, and to make the main concepts of the theory more transparent.
