Dissecting Bad Models - Solar Temperature Gradient Paradox

A number of astrophysical assumptions and deductions have gone unchallenged for far too long. The thermonuclear sun stands contradicted by empirical observation. Would Sir Arthur Eddington have abandoned his theory if he knew then what we know now?

So what are the alternatives? I'm not going to pretend I understand the science behind my postulations, but my fuzzy mental image is that it must be some form of wave-wave interactions, perhaps with other mechanisms not
presently identified. Aren't these links suggestive of such a process?

Non-linear wave-wave interactions:
In this paper we present evidence for the nonlinear wave-wave interactions
involving electrostatic electron plasma (Langmuir) waves in the Solar wind,
ion acoustic waves, and, possibly, transverse electromagnetic waves.

Plasma heating due to Alfven wave excitation:

hi GaryN
So what are the alternatives?
The alternative is the electrically powered, by galactic birkeland currents, Sun.
