    No. The universe is the place.


    Its the way nature is!
    If you dont like it, go somewhere else....
    To another universe, where the rules are simpler
    Philosophically more pleasing, more psychologically easy

    According to BBT cosmology, the universe sort of curves around so if you travel far enough in one direction, you may end up back where you started. If there is an outside, then you'd never be able to get to it.

    On the other hand, if the BBT is wrong and the universe is infinite in size, then there is no need to ask ourselves what lies outside of it.
    Some clocks are only right twice a day, but they are still right when they are right.

    Don't we live in the Universe?

    Am I mistaken?
