Maybe it is easier in context - the quote comes from the movie The Prestige (apparently). From the Character Nikola Tessla: You're familiar with the phrase "Man's reach exceeds his grasp"? It's a lie. Man's grasp exceeds his nerve. The only limits on scientific progress are those imposed by society. The first time I changed the world, I was hailed as a visionary. The second time I was asked politely to retire. The world only tolerates one change at a time. And so here I am. Enjoying my "retirement". Nothing is impossible, Mr. Angier, what you want is simply expensive. Played by David Bowie (who knew?) It is not that we can't grasp it - we won't grasp it cause we are scared.

"Reach your arm out as far as it can go". Notice that just because your fingertips may be able to touch something, it doesn't mean that you can curl your fingers around it to grasp it. This is used as a metaphor for how humans are able to touch on ideas, technologies, and feats without being able to fully master them.

@bbv1814 did you mean that we are having a vision of something and working to reach it,or something that says the probability and possibility. with the grasp as the probability and reach as the possibility.
