[NTLK] OT: A Future That is a Singularity - Evolution

Doing some research, I came across an interesting article about a  
future that is a singularity through mathematical recursion. The  
explanation is that we may one day be able to create machines, that  
themselves are able to create more intelligent machines than  
themselves. As it follows along this path, it goes on until a  
singularity forms through mathematical recursion. A possible future,  
that is just one big thing, where nothing is separate.

I wonder if this has been modelled yet in an evolutionary context? And  
would a singularity be more 'simple', thus fueling the proponents who  
hold the idea that evolution is not concerned about complexity...

Thank you,
