    Quote:

    Cosmic rays are particles
    while gamma is a wave the at functions different from a physical thing.
    We know that waves uninhabited will continuously pick up momentum.

That is correct in terms of accepted human science.   
My point is that why would beings like Eternity, Galactus and the Celestials accept human terminology?  

If we look at it from a larger sense of cosmic, meaning: 
1aof or relating to the cosmos, the extraterrestrial vastness, or the universe in contrast to the earth alonecosmic radiation
bof, relating to, or concerned with abstract spiritual or metaphysicalcosmic wisdom
2characterized by greatness especially in extent, intensity, or comprehensivenesscosmic thinkera book of cosmic significance
Which is inline with how Marvel has historically used the term "cosmic power, "Power Cosmic", "cosmic energy" or even "cosmic ray" and I think it qualifies Ewing's choice as consistent with Marvel tradition.   That's my point.  

-----------------------------------------------------
As far as the Higher beings in the MU, I'm sure most of them, though
termed cosmic, use other forms of energy as well including mystical.
Beings like FF, Captain Marvel and the U-Foes use cosmic while Silver Surfer channels it, they differ from those Higher entity forms.
-----------------------------------------------------

Mystical energy is usually depicted as distinct from cosmic energy in Marvel, though they can overlap.

I also view Surfer as sort of a miniaturized cosmic being given that he was granted a tiny fraction of Galactus' own "cosmic" essence which grants him the ability to utilize any type of energy (except maybe magical) and control over the fundamental forces.
