photon has energy and presumably it curves space-time.So can a

graviton affect the motion of a virtual photon through space-time and

vice-versa? If so, can the gravitational field be quantized

independently of the electric field?

Does there have to be a field operator that gives two probabilities

for each point in space: one probability for creating particles for

the gravitational field and another probability for creating particles

for the electric field ?

The electric field has been quantized independently of the

gravitational field but was this just the inevitability of "adjusting"

equations in QED?
