The Big Bang was everywhere, not just some particular location in our space. So the cosmic microwave background is seem by looking out in any direction. Even in unconventional theories (brane collisions...) the special starting condition was everywhere.
The "organization" you mention was nothing exotic. It's just that protons and electrons, the main ordinary matter constituents of our universe, form an opaque plasma when they're hot. So you can't use light to see into that regime. Once they cooled down, they mostly combined into hydrogen atoms, which form a transparent gas, allowing light to travel through it.
