    which they say is shown by the lines on your hand

    In the COBUILD Advanced Learner’s English Dictionary, it says:

    fortune n.
    When someone tells your fortune, they tell you what they think will happen to you in the future, which they say is shown, for example, by the lines on your hand.
    ---------
    What does 'which' refer to? Does it refer to 'future'?

    Would you be so kind as to help me?
    Thanks!

    PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.
    I'm not a teacher. Please feel free to correct me. :)
