Eh... an actual "grand unifying theory" might be hyperbole. The original concept drives from Einstein's desire to unify Gravity with the other three electromagnetic forces. The reason was that gravity stuck out like a sore thumb, behaving well when discussing large objects, but breaking down under quantum mechanics.

As for me, I really just figure you can eliminate the problem all together by redefining gravity as an accumulation of the quantum electric forces over extremely long distances over the agregate.

Gravity is NOT an accumulation of quantum electric forces.

Similarly, the strong and weak and weak forces are not electromagnetic forces.

But there is one electromagnetic force, appropriately called electromagnetism.

There is obviously no need to read any further. [/quote]
