Where are we?

    Where are we?

    I mean-where is planet Earth?
    Where is the Milky Way?
    Where is the universe?

    Everyone (every man) strives for a context by which to define his or her location. You can keep drawing greater circles around your apparent position, but you never end with an answer. The answer allows eludes. But this is still something of some importance to many who ponder the concept.

    What lies beyond our Universe? Our universe is expanding into the region beyond it, so what is that region? How big is that region? And what is beyond even that? And what about higher level demensions as theorized by String Theory?
