Biography of Michel Desmarquet (1931-2018), written by Dr. Tom Chalko.

Michel Desmarquet was born in 1931 in Normandy, in the northern part of France. From childhood, he did not like the cool, cloudy and rainy weather in Normandy and dreamed of living in warm countries. When he was 16, France was recruiting for its military in central Africa.

Michel left the agricultural school in which he studied and forced his parents to agree for him to join military in Africa.

After the first day of drilling, Michel realized that he had made a mistake. When the general arrived to inspect the recruits, Michel ran out of line, shook the general's hand and announced loudly that he wanted to go home. Everyone present burst out laughing because they had never seen anything like that before.

Michel's adventures in the French army in central Africa deserve a separate book. When he told me about them - when I visited him in 1996 - we both laughed so much that our stomach muscles ached nonstop for two weeks. To this day, in the French military in Africa, Michel's exploits are known, because their descriptions are passed down by soldiers from generation to generation. In short, Michel, with the help of his innate sense of humor, spoiled military discipline as much as he could and no disciplinary punishment had the intended effect.

France then waged a war in Vietnam and recruited Africans to fight for them in Vietnam. When Michel was sent to a military prison, where African natives were guards, he learned several local dialects. This skill allowed him to spoil the plans of recruiting Africans to the French army in Vietnam with great success.

After his military "service" in Africa, Michel joined a coffee plantation company, helped by his knowledge of African dialects. After leaving Africa, he settled in New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean, where he grew tomatoes. He then moved to Australia, acquired a farm on the edge of the tropical jungle near Cairns, and began helping Australians maintain their tropical gardens.

Due to his exceptional strength of character, Michel was chosen in June 1987 to make an interstellar journey through our galaxy, visit the planet called Thiaoouba ( יהוה in the Old Testament) and report what he saw and heard without distortion.

Advanced people of Thiaoouba יהוה (the same people who gave Moses the Ten Commandments ~3,250 years ago) entrusted Michel a mission to write a book describing his visit to the planet Thiaoouba along with the message of Thiaoouba to the present inhabitants of Earth.

The journey took place using the so-called "trans-substantiation", which consists in leaving space-time and returning to it elsewhere in our galaxy. Michel's book, Thiaoouba Prophecy, contains Michel's detailed account of this journey.

After returning to Earth, Michel encountered numerous difficulties. Since he has never written anything in his life, except letters to his parents, it took him ~3 years to write a book by hand in French under the telepathic guidance of Thao, his mentor from Thiaoouba.

Further difficulties arose after the book was translated into English and printed. In 1995, Michel funded the printing of 10,000 books in the US, but no bookstore wanted to sell them. In 1996, Michel abandoned the entire print run in the USA, because the printing house wanted a monthly fee for storing books.

In Australia, the first small print run was sold in 1993, but no bookstore wanted to sell the second print. The change of the title did not help.

Almost no one on Earth believed Michel, not even the so-called UFO specialists and Michel became depressed. After his return to Earth, two consecutive wives left him and in 2000 Michel decided to completely abandon his mission with the book, go to Vietnam to marry for a third time and finally achieve "peace of mind".

In 1996-1999 I organized several dozen public lectures for Michel, many of them in the largest auditoriums of the University of Melbourne, where I was teaching at the time. I also started the website to popularize Michel's book and its message around the world.

I was in contact with Michel almost daily at the time, clarifying numerous inaccuracies and ambiguities in the original English translation. To clarify these inaccuracies, Michel had to carefully check the details in his French manuscript. Michel then entrusted me with the role of his "secretary" on the internet, claiming that I knew his book and the answers to all people's questions.

When Michel decided to abandon his book for a second time and go to Vietnam in 2000 - he offered me to buy the rights to the English edition of his book. Seeing my objection, Michel said, "if you don't want to buy publishing rights yourself - find me someone better than you." After a week, Michel called me to ask if I had found anyone. I had to admit that I didn't... I finally agreed to accept the obligation to publish and popularize his mission and the book, but on the condition that I could make the entire book available for download for free from the Internet.

To this day, a free English version of Michel's book with 1996-1999 corrections is available at under the title Thiaoouba Prophecy.

Shortly before his death, Michel called me from Vietnam to tell me that Thao, his mentor from Thiaoouba, had visited him and expressed satisfaction with the popularization of his mission and his book on Earth. This call brought me a relief because it confirmed that my 20+ year efforts to popularize Michel's book and mission had achieved the intended result.
