Synopsis

Jack lives a normal life in a declining world only to be awakened after his death. Others of the dead convince him that he could have done better and may even save the world from the impending doom that claimed his life.
Jack agrees to try and returns to the world armed with a few friends and a few tools of advanced design. He will work work within the parameters of his world to change it instead of producing a few miracles and then demanding compliance.
His team amasses some wealth and turns their abilities toward finding the creator whom they know to be within the solar system. They know the creator is an artificial intelligence who has created us for a specific purpose.
They plan to find it and convince it to utilize the race, as planned, before it destroys itself. They suspect the machine is benign but has no emotion and does not care if it succeeds in it's mission: it has been thwarted by race failures many times in the past.
