Perhaps a catasrophe would not lead to damaging the chances of the
singularity but would actually enhance them. For example the efforts in
WW2 in science, although ultimately destructive, provided great amounts
of progress. A catastrophe may even help the singularity on its way by
applying pressure and causing a bottleneck effect. Not that I want it to
happen, just a possibility.....
