We all say the universe is big because it contains everything; but...

What if; there is something existing and it's not in the universe?

Is that impossible?

I don't really think so:(

it seems to me that there can be everything in the universe that we can imagine
in the end, where does the same come from in our imagination, pictures of various unusual creatures, aliens, animals, etc.
maybe all of us have once encountered this in some way
and as for me it is a little silly to think that we, earthlings, are the only intelligent beings in the universe

Are there OTHER things happening outside of our universe?
It's just not in our universe, so it's not happening to us, does that mean it's not happening at all?
Or is it happening/has it happened/can it happen, outside of our universe?
Is that impossible?

The word 'universe' means everything that exists (and has existed or will exist), whether we humans know about it or not.

Thus there is no 'our' universe and no 'outside'.

Quoting leics2

The word 'universe' means everything that exists (and has existed or will exist), whether we humans know about it or not.

Thus there is no 'our' universe and no 'outside'.

We can determine that multiverses can exist by shooting photons through slits observing them to go through one slit or another, but if let to its own devices, one photon will go through two slits thus technically being in two places at the same time; however observation collapses one outcome to favour another.
Now in another universe, the outcome not seen in our universe is played out; multiverse tests with nothing more than shooting photons at slits.

But I wonder, is it impossible for something to exist outside of our space time continuum?

Outside of space time and the universe and multiverses, outside of everything.
If such was possible, to exist outside time itself, it could be as timeless as infinity since it's outside of our beginning and our end, relatively speaking of course, if observed from our time space continuum, could do logic defying stuff; or because it's outside of the universe, it could be existing, but we'd have no way of observing it.

I don't think this is impossible.
