I think that the quantum field theory applies wherever. Standard Model is a current standard.

I am not sure what the standard model is , I've heard of a Higgs field ?

I am also not sure whether your assumption of QFT applying wherever is correct because we don't/can't observe everywhere assuming an outer space .

Higgs field belongs to Standard Model https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_Model.
You say, if we can't observe it we should shut up ? That's a tough philosophy.
I never suggested ''to shut up'' , I would never be so rude ! I just said that fields may or may not apply to wherever . Thank you for the link I will read it over and get back to you with a question maybe .

What people are telling you is that we assume that all quantum fields which are known to exist here on Earth exist everywhere in the universe. These fields are described by the Standard Model.

Our visual universe or universe which are not the same ? We observe a fraction of the universe, so to say these quantum fields exist everywhere in the universe is a falsity . We can describe they exist everywhere within xyzt (space-time) would be more precise and appropriate .
The expansion of space-time possibly relatable to a Higgs field inflation ?
Do we assume that quantum fields of bodies are independent of a HIggs field ?
Do we assume that the electrical neutrality of a Higgs field is a single entity or a combination of elements like an atom?
