I report here for the first time that the variables forming the SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1) group structure of particle physics, in which all the particles transform directly or indirectly only into one another, can formally function as a "collectively autocatalytic system". The implications may be transformative. A capacity for collectively autocatalysis might drive Cosmogenesis itself. A capacity for the variables of SU(3) x SU(2 ) x U(1) to be autocatalytic invites new questions: "How might the

"What might be the implications for Cosmogenesis? If we imagine the standard Big Bang, why is there a capacity for autocatalysis? Autocatalysis suggests the possibility of Darwinian Cosmic evolution over a space of Laws and, for each law, all the values of their Constants, in which the fittest variant universe "wins". Given our laws, SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1), can we explain our Laws and even the specific values of the Constants as arising from an adaptive evolutionary process?I introduce the "Toy" Particle Apothecary Model, PAM, to study the stochastic branching collectively autocatalytic processes among the fundamental particles. This autocatalytic process yields a kinetic phase transition breaking matter – antimatter symmetry, so creates baryogenesis. Baryogenesis creating particles, together with the hypothesis that actualization events among these particles as they entangle yields a construction of spacetime, suggests a new candidate for the unknown physics of Inflation. Together these hope to go beyond the Standard Model and find a pathway from SU(3) x SU(2) x U(1) to the lambda-CDM standard model of the Cosmogenesis.This is not a yet a mathematized theory, although tensor networks may be a candidate. This is at most a search for a framework that could become a formalized theory and hopefully join to and modify General Relativity.
