Ensemble Organization within Creation

One of the Fundamental Rules, and a putative Fundamental Prerequisite, is the principle of "Ensemble".

The Ensemble Principle, simply stated, suggests that each increased "layer" or "unit" of complexity within the universe is composed of an ensemble of "units" from layers of reduced complexity below it. A simpler interpretation of the Ensemble Principle is that all things are made up of other things. If this Principle is a Rule, but not a Prerequisite, then the Ensemble Principle holds true until we get to "The One Initial Thing", which presumably existed at least at the time of the Big Bang.

On the other hand, if indeed Ensemble is also a Fundamental Prerequisite, then it follows that for the Big Bang to actually have occured, it would have been the result of the interplay of two or more "things" that existed at a lower level of complexisty ahead of the Big "Interaction and Reaction."

In other words, the Big Bang was either an extraordinarily rare (in our observable universe) event, or, it was the result of two or more extraordinarily rare events that together resulted in The Big Bang.
