Having read the 'The bigger bang' book two times over, I am struck by the fact that the author seems to ask and answer the question of quasar energy emission without stating he is doing so or explaining why it would be wrong to assume he is doing so. In the beginning of the book, Lindsey states that at the very edge of the observable universe we see objects (quasars) that emit an unexplained amount of energy. In a later chapter on inflation, Lindsey explains that while the universe is still close to D, it is no longer inflating. If I understand correctly and reason about my understanding, an object that would have been just outside of the visible universe from our perspective, would, resulting from the closeness to D have been 'just outside' for quite some time. This would seem to imply that once the passing of time expands the visible universe to include this object. If I reason about what would happen to the energy emitted by the object and the arrival time, it would seem that when the object drops into our visible universe, the energy arrival of the 'just outside' period will be virtually fast-forwarded to us as an observer, giving the 'illusion' of high energy emission. That is, for me the combination of simple intuitive thinking and the facts that Lindsey sums up in his book make me conclude that any object at the edge of our visible universe should by means of such a fast-forward effect inevitably seem to emit massive amounts of energy, even though in reality it doesn't. I had this nagging question the first time I read the book some years back, and asked about it on an other forum without getting any responses. After having re-read the book in order to see if I may have misread it the first time, I still end up with the same question. Is this indeed how quasars work, and did Lindsey fail to mention this in his book, claiming falsely that quasar energy emissions were unexplained, or did I fail to understand the explanation en repercussions of the facts that Lindsey stated in his chapter on deflation? Or did I (and I find this extremely unlikely given my lack of astrophysical education) actually make a scientific discovery about quasars with nothing more than intuitive thinking?
