What are the available theories to explain the amount of energy concentrated in quasars? And what are possible problems in those theories?

I don't have any background in this, I'm just trying to ascertain whether the philosophy of technology book I'm reading is still up to date. Thanks.

What book are you reading and what is its date of publication?

I think plural black holes is a clue as to why they turn on and off
