M-Theory as an anyonic electromagnetism?

    I was reading about M2 branes these days and I found out that the special thing about the BLG 3-algebra it is that they relate branes to a chern simons dual-quiver tiling of the torus:


    Non abelian anyons are one of the simplest examples of matter coupling to CS in 2+1 dimensions. So, I thought that hypersurface interlacing M2 branes in a tiling could be thought of being induced by M5 flux flowing perpendicular to that surface. So, I would like to know if the M2 branes could be thought of the anyon electromagnetic dual of M5 branes? Or in other words, that M-Theory is a massive electromagnetic theory with anyon charges
