The performance artist Marina Abramović has said the following in a forum at the New York Public Library:
In Africa you have Dogon tribes who worship Trans-Pluto, which is you know a small satellite around Pluto, which had been developed only maybe forty years ago when telescopes and technology developed so strong that they can actually see there is a Trans-Pluto. These people for hundreds of years worshiped, in their ceremonies worshiped this Trans-Pluto, because they knew it all the way it existed, which is not possible to perceive with naked eye.
She has recently mentioned the same on NPR's Brian Lehrer Show, in a conversation with a neuroscientist.
Is there any legitimate research speaking to these claims? Is Trans-Pluto real and was it discovered a few decades ago? Did the Dogon tribes worship the same object?
