Q: 'huge possibilities,as yet, remain tantasingly over the next horizon'. What does this phrase mean?( mainly the last part) とはどういう意味ですか?
A: Watch the spelling carefully. It should be "tantalisingly" over the next horizon. "Tantalising" means just out of reach. It comes from the Greek myth about Tantalus, who was punished in the afterlife by having to stand in a pool of water and with bunches of grapes hanging near his mouth. Every time he bent down to drink, the water shrank away and every time he reached for some grapes, they rose out of reach. So if something is tantalising it means that you can nearly do it or reach it, but it remains (for the time being) not quite possible.

Q: possibility と chance はどう違いますか?
A: Right. Saying "I have a chance" implies you are hoping the chance is met. For bad things saying 'there is a chance" is best.
Q: possibility と probability はどう違いますか?
A: "Probability" and "possibility" can both mean likelihood and neither is inherently more likely than the other.

People tend to feel that a probability is more likely but of course the probability may be very low (unlikely).

"...in all probability..." does mean it is most likely.

"Possibility" can also mean something is just possible, again the possibility may be remote (unlikely).
