# The function below will return true if the selection is defined.
from pymol import cmd
from types import *

def sele_exists(sele):
    sess = cmd.get_session()
    for i in sess["names"]:
        if type(i) is ListType:
            if sele==i[0]:
                return 1
    return 0
  1. Note from Warren:
  2. a simpler, faster approach:

def sele_exists(sele):

  return sele in cmd.get_names("selections")
