So just read the bit where Toni talks to Jade about how shapeshifter and exemplar traits are theorized to be different applications of the same trait and it got me to thinking: you could almost say the same about just about every power in relation to warping.
The power works because the mutant believes it should and they impinge that reality around them.
Does this sound feasibleStore

They can actually use technology to detect warping, and while warping is used to explain quite a few powers, most of which work radically different from each other, the other non warping powers don't warp anything detectable.
The thing about the Whateleyverse is that they have a whole bunch of different systems to define powers: Hewley-Aranis, Yerunkle-Corbin , Miller-McFarlane etc. - and various theories about how they work: various dimensional-physics stuff mentioned in Ayla and the Tests, Pattern Theory (which nearly no-one fully understands) and presumably a bunch of other stuff that has not yet seen the light of canon from the rumoured hidden bible.
Not only that, there's still a lot of basic stuff that isn't clearly known (shapeshifting-exemplar relationship, relationship between Psi and magic etc.)
So you can propose any sort of thing that you think fits the evidence, but then other posters will immediately chime in for or against, because there is a LOT of evidence.
