    I would think that all occurrences arising from conscious intent, direction, effort, or planning do not happen by chance. Perhaps your interest is the statistical aspects of chance, which you may want to explore in the math forum.

    Thanks for that. But then...the person doing the planning etc. is a chance occurence...if ancestor a, never met ancestor b, etc.

    Then again, if the conscious intent of our ancestors were to have sex, there was a chance they'd have progeny, etc. It could be said that all in existence arose by chance including the emergence of conscious intent. It could also be said that conscious intent merely influences the chance that produces an occurrence. If it's a question of which came first (chicken or egg analogy), chance occurrences likely arose before consciously directed occurrences.
