My first guess would be that it would look like today's cybernetic 
environment, except with many more nodes, twists and turns and many 
more energetic structures, all contributing in an ecological entropy 
maximization process via the creation of more information and more data 
structures, tools to process data and subjective intrepretations of the 
values. If the singularity is a complex system, then it would be 
recursively revising itself and exploring near and far possibility 
space. Is this what you are looking for?
