First of all, it will not be a technological singularity -it will be a human singularity, and this initial technological” misunderstanding about it might have catastrophic results; secondly, it is not comprehensible within the frame of mind that affirms it, not because we do not know what it will be, but because by definition a human singularity is inaccessible to what is currently called consciousness -a very small part of thought.
A difference between the traditional systems engineering approach and the end state based approach is that the portions of the systems engineering process related to definition of a technology development program, such as the use of alternative scenarios, are specifically focused for explication in the end state approach.
More recently, modern works of science fiction such as those by Philip K. Dick and William Gibson and films such as Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell project highly ambivalent or cautionary attitudes toward technology’s impact on human society and identity.
