Insight on holography at the planck scale

Part of my basic understanding of the holographic principal is that the amount information in a given area of space is less than the surface area that surrounds that region (measured in Planck units squared). The exception being that in the case of a black hole the information stored within an area of space is equal to and perfectly correlated to the information stored on the surface area of the event horizon of the said black hole.

From this we can derive that the surface area of the event horizon of the universe operates in the same or a similar manner as that of the event horizon of a black hole, just with less information inside than is capable of being stored (so no collapse to a black hole). I mention all this because if there is a problem in my basic premise or understand I would like to know.

Given the above is correct, we must infer information exists at the Planck scale in some form. So an individual unit of information at the Planck scale is its surface area squared. Using the same logic as above and given the Planck scale logically functions as an event horizon or singularity, should we not infer that a single Planck unit of information contains within its confines a higher dimensional hologram of the same information stored on the surface area. This seems to be a violation of physics and at the same time a logical outcome of the holographic theroy.

Would love your thoughts on the above thinking (where you think I go wrong etc.).
