A basic rule of universe is that complexity remains, you can merely shift it around.

You can always increase complexity. For instance, by doing all math in Roman Numerals. Thus, in at least some cases you can decrease it. So your statement doesn't hold.

I think you were referring to something like inherent complexity, but then you would have to somehow prove that all this complexity is inherent.
