    Is it possible to use an object as a selection path?

      I know in photoshop you can make shapes with the pen tool and then covert them into a selection path.
      I was wondering if there is such similar feature in Illustrator

       

      For example with the picture I posted here, what I want to do is be able to select the objects that are in contact with the black object on top without having to individually select them or use the "lasso" tool

       

      It would make things easier with a "Select all objects under or above" option, theres only the "Select next object under or above"
