    By that vague of a definition though, gamma as well would be a subset of "cosmic" energies, as indeed Ewing showed both originate from the same source in the end.

    And it tracks that entities of an abstract nature partake of the power balance between the forces they embody, so the Power Cosmic we have so far seen is not limited to traditional "cosmic rays". Indeed we have often seen Surfer or major gods manipulate both gamma and cosmic before. Magic is kind of a third pole, as it behaves in its own way when interacting with both, while Gamma and Cosmic are mostly "scientific" but the higher you go in the abstract territory  the more blurred the lines become between the scientific and the magical.

    I guess this is just a semantic game to keep the illusion that gamma is more powerful than cosmic, while from what Ewing showed us it's just a balanced coin. Gamma is more destructive in nature, Cosmic is just as potentially powerful in opposing destruction/creating though.

    Of course both can be used to punch/explode something very very hard if the story needed them to.



I was purposely being brief as I addressed it in an above post that some scientists say that gamma is the highest form of cosmic energy.

It's not semantics, this is science. Different energies differ because they have different frequencies that cause different effects.
