Why Gozo?

Or a journey into our origins... We are going to travel far so please keep your mind opened

I discover Gozo purely by accident, when I join a friend who wanted to go to Malta in 2011. I looked on internet, to me Malta evocated the lost civilisation of Atlantis, Nature, the Sea, a secret garden, a well preserved habitat, a marine protected area, without a doubt a sanctuary with underwater temples and a wonderful place for freediving.


I started freediving about the same time I started matial arts when I was around 10-11. I became so passionate with freediving, and later the movie the Big Blue came out when I was about 18 so I went to Greece first with my girl friend and 2 other friends. But it was in December 2011 I discovered Malta and Gozo. Since I did more than 70 return travels from France to Malta.

So when I looked first on internet about Malta I discovered it was made of 3 islands and the ones that attracted me the most was Gozo and Comino. And I was right. I don’t go often to the main Island of Malta.


During one of my stays in Gozo I even met and reunite with Jean-Paul Pagnoud alias JPP who was one of the judo teachers of my judo club when I was in France… An he was living there, in Gozo! The friendship, the good energy is with us anywhere anyway… Gozo the island of synchronicities?

Me and JPP in Gozo : how life is incredible, finding him in Gozo when I first met him in my university judo club in France where he was a sensei and friend for years


I discovered another world, or another dimension where time slow down. I explored the island, the underwater caves… I eventually created an NGO (Non Governmental Organisation) to raise awareness about the plastic in the sea. Also I was amazed by the singularity of these islands…

With many friends we picked up the plastic and other waste around Gozo. In 2013 I created the NGO We Are All One (WAAO) to raise awareness about the plastic in the sea around Gozo. Here it was a national cleanup organised by several associations from Malta and Gozo (GUG, Let’s Do It Malta and WAAO). In the same time without knowing it there were a Mediterranean clean up, another similar operation in the Baltic Sea, in Brasil too, and the European parlement were passing a text to ban the use of plastic bags.


During the pas 10 years despite I explored a lot Gozo I still discover new places. Because the shape of the island is made of hills, ravins, fjords… there are many little places hard to access and one day or another you always find something new.


About the mysteries of Malta and Gozo, its history and especially its prehistoric origines : it is most probably the craddle of the Mediterranean civilisation (Malta: Origins Of Mediterranean Civilization – Luigi M Ugolini, 1932).

During the 2.5 million years of the stone age, according to the temperature changes and Milankovitch cycles, the sea went up and 140 meters down alowing civizations to thrive and build structures that are today underwater.

Similarities between maltese and african structures

Below is a comparison between the maltese temples and the very old african structures discovered by Johan Heine, a South African pilot and Michael Tellinger (these circular structures are dated between 60,000 and 300,000 years old). As I was very curious about these South African stone circles (called “Adam’s Calendar” for their very ancient origins), I discover that they spread from South to North Africa in various sizes, and I found that maltese temples had quite a similar pattern. Another clue was the metallic sound of the stones. If you wander in those prehistoric sites in Malta and Gozo, and if you pick a hard stone and hit it with another stone, there is a chance it rings almost like a bell. Michael Tellinger noticed exactly the same in South Africa… Could it be a coincidence? When I looked into the possible connection with egypt, the sumerian “gods” or the ancient builders I found a common point : the resonnance and the possible use of a sound technology. I sent an e-mail to Mickael Tellinger around 10 years ago about what I just explained, and he had no doubt about the connection between the maltese builders and the african ones… That is what I could observe as an amateur. According to Michael and other independent researchers and writers who have investigated for years, if not dedicated their lives and published many things on that topic like Graham Hancock, Samir Osmaganish, Erich von Däniken, Klaus Donna etc. All of these remains go back much further in time than is dogmatically accepted (for political and/or religious reasons). In the photos below only the first one on the top left is a maltese temple (all the other ones are from Africa) :

Echoes of the past

Different lost civilisations would have thrived and collapsed such Atlantis and Lemuria.

Regarding a possible connection of the maltese archipelago with Atlantis I had the chance to meet and talk with Anton and Simon Mifsud. They are both maltese distinguished scholars, funders of the Maltese Prehistoric Society, co-authors of a very interesting book : Echoes of Plato’s Island.

The Atlantean civilisation could have also spread on a large scale, especially if they would be linked to pyramids and the underwater structures we found in the Bahamas and the azores islands for example. Also the Richat structure in the desert of Mauritania is very interesting.

The Richat Structure (50km wide) also called “The Eye of Africa” is located in such a harsh environment that it kept explorers away.

The documentary “The Revelation of the Pyramids” below emphasises the interconnections between different locations far away from each other on Earth at different times and they all align : in Egypt the Giza plateau and the Sewa Oasis, in Peru the Nazca lines, macchu Pichu, Ollantay Tambo, Cuzco, Saccsay Huaman, Paratoari, Paracas, in Africa the Dogon country, the Tassili N’ajjer, in the Middle-East Petra in Jordan, Ur and Persepolis in Iran. And many other locations such as Mohejo Daro in Pakistan, Khajuraho in India, Pyay in Burma, Sukhothaï in Thaïland, Angkor Wat et Preah Vihear in Cambodia, Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean and even the Shen-HSI pyramids in China… All these sites alignments are GPS certified on a straight path all around the planet. Some have very similar building complexe fittings and would be projection of stellar objects. The more you dig into these mysteries the more questions arise. Despite the origin of mankind has been a well kept secret for a long time, more discoveries, new answers and new questions appear. The


Going back to the maltese temples a study was made and a journal was published about the peculiar sound properties of the temples (Paolo Debertolis and al, Journal of Anthropology and Archaeology, 2017). There is also a group of researcers called the Super Brain Research Group (SBRG). It is an international and interdisciplinary non-profit organization of researchersfrom Italy, Finland, U.K., Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia, researching on archaeoacoustic and anthropological properties of ancient sites and temples throughout Europe and Asia (www.sbresearchgoup.eu).


Being in Gozo is a physical connection somehow to these topics just through its prehistoric appearence. When you are close to a cliff or in a valley you can easily imagine a pterodactyl suddenly appearing in the sky 🙂 There is something special, almost dreamlike thing that talks to me, and also a physical and real thing that is happening for real. I was talking about synchronicities. This relation we have with the “coïncidences” in our life. There is something subjective into it, psychological, almost magical, or in a more moderate way it is a sort of quantum experience. It is as if our inner intentions, our dreams, could manifest in certain forms. It would be the proof that we as humans have a the power to alter reality, to manifest things, like Wayne Dyer explains so well in this interesting video “the power of intention” if you are familiar with this.

But above all, what intrigues me the most are the people I met. Wherever I go I have found my roots in the human heart, friendship, family spirit, the feeling of unity and all the things we can share… And for me Gozo maybe has a role into it like a catalyst. I am grateful and happy to share my passions in such an environment. A big thank you I love you to my family and friends! We are One! Aloha! Ooss
