Yet in these coalescences for the Weyl curvature hypothesis to be correct, and for these mergers to form larger elliptical galaxies, the non-conservative “friction” which results from luminous matter (LM) interactions must be sufficient to result in some long term gravitational pull on the dark matter (DM).

The phenomenon is often called the gravitational redshift because the oscillations of light waves slow down or become redder when tugged by gravity.
