Fluctuations of the quantum vacuum are best understood in terms of virtual particle anti-particle pairs. In the context of the Weinberg formula that relates the mass of a pion to fundamental physical constants such as the gravitational constant and the Hubble constant, we will define the mass of an electron in the same fashion since virtual electron-positron pairs are far more common in the quantum vacuum fluctuations of Quantum Electrodynamics than virtual pion pairs. After redefining the
