Variable Electrical Charge Cosmological Redshift

According to condensation theories of galaxy formation (Berry 1976) the interiors of galaxies undergo gradual increase in density due to self gravitation. The swept-out regions which surround galaxies undergo concomitant decreases in density - relative to the primordial state. If the magnitude of the unit electrical charge e were to be a function of the cosmologically "local" density, then the frequencies of atomic spectra, which are considered to be proportional to the fourth power of the unit charge, would also be a function of the "local" density. (Cosmologicallly local density, as used here, pertains to the total amount of matter in a volume of space on the order of ten cubic light years.) It would follow then that as the interior densities of galaxies increase, the frequencies of their stellar atomic spectra would also increase. (A unit charge differential (local versus remote) of only 0.0074e could account for the observed stellar redshifts in the furthest removed Sc I galaxies.) The spectra for atomic processes in objects located in the swept-out regions near galaxies would tend toward much lower frequencies than for corresponding processes inside galaxies. A scenario in which elemenatary interactins between charged particles do not strictly obey the superposition principle is used to explain how the magnitude of the unit electrical charge can be a function of the cosmologically local density. The secenario predicts that QSOs and other high redshift objects have been forming in place, in the low-unit-charge: swept-out regions which surround galaxies, rather than being there as a result of having been ejected from galactic cores as proposed by Arp.
