wasted effort.

I believe, after reading your posts, that when you say "electric" you mean something other than the mechanical force generated by the flow of electrons. You appear to mean something about the fields underlying both the electron and the photon, which allow them to turn back and forth into one another.
A more comprehensible way of saying this in normal scientific terms would be "electromagnetic."
Yes, electromagnetism is one of the 4 fundamental forces in quantum physics. Yes, perturbation theory shows it to be functionally equivalent to ("normalizable with) two of the other forces, the weak and the strong. The only force that has NOT yet been reconciled in this way is in fact gravity.
So if you are saying that a successful theory-of-everything will demonstrate gravitation to be the same Kind of thing as electromagnetism, well
