Chameleon gravity is a theory in which a hypothetical new scalar field is conformally coupled to the Einstein metric.
It has actually been around since 2004. Experimental attempts to detect the hypothetical field have all been negative.
So relax, it is just another tooth-fairy field invented by theoretical physicists who have gotten lost in math.

Well, if math can have imaginary numbers, they why can't physics have imaginary fields? Fields full of complex chameleons.
