    We will never know, because Everything that can ever be detected by us is considered to be in our universe!
    What do you think is the definition of universe?

    But do you think that everything that can be detected i.e. observed,,, constitutes the entirety of our universe?? Or is our visable universe just a subsection of a larger one?

    I would go with the former. But I don't know what the mainstream scientists believe.

    i would define universe as the entire space in which time exists for a certain group or type of matter/particle/anything that can interact with something else. I think universes might be overlapping each other
