A virtual Earth-like planet (green) is added to the actual Solar System. Each frame of this animation displays a particular trajectory of this planet when moved from Pluto -bottom left- to the Sun -top right- (see figure "The journey of an Earth-like virtuel planet (green) from Pluto (grey) to the Sun (yellow) -heliocentric view-"). Each of these trajectories has a duration equals to one plutonian year (247 terrestrial years) and belongs to the plane of Pluto. For each of these intermediate trajectories, the 11-body system is visualized with the virtual planet at the origin of coordinates.

The relative trajectories look non periodical and even chaotic. Do not forget that the trajectories of the virtual planet and of the Earth do not belong to the same plane -the ecliptic plane-. Is this a new form of chaos: the Virtual Chaos? It is worth noting that the same phenomenon can be observed with with pure uniform circular motions.

What kind of science -Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy in particular- and what kind of religions could be developped in a such non regular context?

Some interesting points of view:

``` from a Sun distance equals to the Earth one,
from a Sun distance equals to the Mars one,
from a Sun distance equals to the Jupiter one,
from a Sun distance equals to the Saturn one,
from a Sun distance equals to the Uranus one,
from a Sun distance equals to the Neptune one,
from a Sun distance equals to the Pluto one.
```

Please, note that due to scale problems, it is almost impossible to visualize actual distances and sizes in the Solar System. Then, it is the square root of the distances to the Sun that are displayed; when the Solar System is displayed without such a non linear scaling, the inner planets are "hidden" by the Sun. Moreover, the diameter of each celestial body is multiplied by a huge arbitrary factor.
