I misunderstood: I thought you meant that you had an actual Selection
object you were working with. If what you have done is select the
atoms you want to work with, then chimera.selection.currentAtoms() is,
as you pointed out, a list of those atoms. Therefore you can just do
clashes = detectClash(chimera.selection.currentAtoms())
