came true by chance selection

< Previous | Next >


Does "chance selection" mean "selection that happens by chance/luck"?

However, in this case, a strong selection process is taking place whereby all the millions of dreams that do not come true are simply ignored. Unless otherwise demonstrated, a plausible explanation that must first be ruled out is that the reported dream came true by chance selection out of many that had no such dramatic outcome.
