One objection to that would be that Kid Kirby doesn't come across as a
mystic so an explanation from him would not sound poetic.  Another
objection is that an explanation would not mean anything to someone
who doesn't understand it.  It would be like telling a blind man that
light consists of photons or that it is an electromagnetic wave.
Well, I suppose that would help.  Maybe if Carina had asked then Kid
Kirby would have said that the Power Kirby was an "energy source".
Actually, he told catalyst Lass that in Nick Furry #1.
