What is the electron?

What is the electron?
Robert Milliken, who weighed electron, in his Nobel speech ( 1923)
told,  that he knew nothing about "last essence of electron".
In that case there is one old joke.
One professor asked a student:
" What is an electron?"
" Ah, God damn it! I have forgotten. And in fact even in the morning
I knew it. "-
the student answered.
" You should recollect it without fail, - professor said because
you were
the unique person who knew, what electron was, and you had suddenly
forgotten!"
This old joke does not grow old.
And today a question: "What is the electron?" remains without answer.
How the electron looks nobody knows.
*      *     *
According to the Maxwell,s theory electron has the form of a sphere.
But everybody knows, that an electron is not a firm sphere.
Everybody knows, that its form can be changed.
But nobody understands the borders of the electron,s changes.
So, what are the borders of this change?
Quantum theory gives an answer to this question.
It says that at the interaction of the electron with the vacuum, his
energy and mass
become infinite. Physicists do not understand what to do with
infinite sizes,
and therefore they have invented "a method of renormalization",
a method  "to sweep the dust under the carpet" / Feynman./
This method is abstract.
The situation can be understood in another way.
Electrons, having the geometrical form of a sphere, lost their
volume and turned
into an indefinitely flat circle. In this reason, infinite sizes of
the electron occurred.
But in physics we know only one particle which has the form of a
flat circle.
It is a quantum of light, which flies rectilinearly   with  speed c=
1.
Therefore, the electron can turns only into a quantum of light.
That is why, the electron or a quantum of light is the same particle
in different states.
*      *     *
It is proved, when electron leaves atom, its electric field changes.
The spherical field will be transformed to an ellipse field.
And in process of his removal the ellipse field is more and more
extended.
And in a limit (at the moment of breaking-off ) the electron gets
the form of a string.
(String theory).
Therefore, electron can have the different geometrical forms:
circle, sphere and string.
*     *     *
In the books it is written, that electrons interact among themselves
with the help
of  a quantum of light. In the books it is written that an electron
in an atom passing
from one orbit to another radiates a quantum of light.
It should be understood as follows.
The electron has a quantum of light in a "pocket" or under a "shirt"
which it gives freedom from time to time.
Why is it necessary for the electron to hide a quantum of light?

I like the idea that the electron and the photon are the same particle in different states.
  My version of this idea is in a paper "Superluminal quantum models of the electron and the photon" at www.superluminalquantum.org .
