You said she won the cosmic lottery. Lotteries are random. That means she was randomly chosen. That’s what that word means. And whether she was “chosen” or not is completely debatable.
Touché, but considering how virtuous, and perfect she is, I take back the cosmic lotery statement, and maintain she was chosen to be the hero:
“Darkness rises, and light to meet it.”
She is thus her destiny to be the defender of the light, not by choice.
That’s still your interpretation. It was someone’s destiny to defend the light. She made the choice to be that someone.
Hello! Do you think that the “awakening” Snoke felt in TFA happened in more than one person? Rey states in TLJ “something inside me has always been there, and now it has awake”. My interpretation is therefore that the force chose her, in a somewhat similar way it chose Anakin in the PT.
Maybe what you say is true, that the awakening happened in more people, “someone’s destiny to defend the light”, but it’s harder to support that claim than it is to support the claim that she was chosen. There’s been no evidence that the awakening of the light to match the dark happened in other people. Even Snoke in TLJ identified said awakening as her.
Anyway, food for thought.
