What's on the other side is, yes. In its purest sense, that's what "singularity" means.

"Impossible to accurately forecast" is "unknowable" for the present.

No-one's arguing that we won't be able to know what the singularity entails after it happens. That's as trivial as saying I "know" the 3-body problem because I can see where all 3 bodies are right now. But our concern is prediction, and you agree that accurate forecasts are impossible.

So, how exactly was I wrong, again?
You aren't wrong, because it's all speculation. Not sure how you COULD be wrong, except after the fact when it's not speculation anymore, as you said. Well, unless you disagree with my predictions. That would obviously be wrong.

That's what happens when you let rednecks play with anti-matter!
