Redshift = intrinsic + distance
Quasars aren't as far away as most astronomers think, they just seem to be because they have high (intrinsic) redshifts.
Meaning; the redshift of quasars is mostly inherent, and the current interpretation of redshift is wrong. Redshift is partially related to distance, but also to the age of the object, and as the age increases, the intrinsic redshift drops in discrete (quantum) steps.
A quasar is a fairly newborn galaxy, ejected from the core of an old galaxy, so its intrinsic redshift is quite high.
NASA astronomers are completely ignoring what large maps of quasars are telling them about redshift. When will they wake up and 'discover' what the rest of us already know?
