At first One was thought of as not even being a number at all since all other numbers are made from it - and it was seen as combining both opposites of odd and even and therefore all other opposites in the universe; because of this it was the number 10 that was seen as completion and perfection since it completed the series of essential numbers (1-9) and brought them all back to unity (10 = 1 + 0 = 1).
