Selections reign supreme

It's tempting to dismiss a selection outline as a means to an end, a way of isolating an area, or moving an image element from one location to another. But in Photoshop selection outlines are full-fledged objects that could be moved, scaled, rotated, and otherwise modified independently of the image. For example, if you look closely you'll see selection outlines wandering your composition, just like the bands of marching ants that we sometimes imagine them to be.

Roaming around in free orbits, circling pixels, and scaring them. The pixels of course resisted. They would like to light torches and beat the marching ants into submission, but they can't, because the ants would eat them. I mention this merely to emphasize the autonomous power of selection outlines. I tell you they reign supreme. For proof watch the following movies.
