Quote:
In quantum terms, one cannot be certain about the line between hallucinations and reality. There are no definite events, no river of time that flows from past to present to future. What exists in its place is a rich matrix of possible outcomes. There are infinite choices within every event, and we determine which select few are going to manifest. At the depths of the mind field, where all things exist in seed form as virtual events, it hardly matters which ones eventually sprout. They are no more real than the seeds that didn't.


1.What does 'it' in 'its' mean?
2.Please, paraphrase 'we determine which select few are going to manifest.'.
(Especially, I have a hard time interpreting 'which select few'.)

Thanks.
