comment Can energy be defined as the most fundamental particle which exists in different forms as protons, electrons etc
Photons are no more fundamental than any other elementary particle.

Photons, with energy equal to the electron's + the positron's.

comment Kaluza-Klein Christoffel Symbols
I should note that there appear to be a number of errors in the paper, but I'm unsure as to whether or not this is an error as well. For example, in the Lorentz force law he derives there is a factor 1/2 in front of the second term on the RHS which keeps the equation from being gauge-invariant (so the 1/2 should just be 1). He also says second term "has no classical correspondence" although a quick check reveals that $k(u^5 + A_\mu u^\mu)$ is the Noether conserved momentum about the 5th dimension which can be associated with charge. So the second term is just an illusion.
