      It is not expanding "into" somewhere, the space which exists is getting larger.

    we have more difficulties understanding what is inside the Universe than out side the physical Universe called Heaven which is our Creators domain.

    Nothing is a mathematical concept and nothing more. As far as we know there is no such thing in the real world.

    This question doesn't make sense. The Universe is everything, so it has no outside.

    The universe simply has no outside. You can't picture the universe as a whole from outside. You can only picture it from inside. The inside is all there is.

    There is nothing outside the universe. Space is a medium inside the universe in which we live. Like a fish in fishbowl. Space is for us what the water is for the fish. We cannot define the thing that is outside the universe simply because it has no properties. It is an endless void of anything, even no space. You cannot enter it. You would also never be able to reach it. But even if you could, then space would simply end and you would bump into this invisible barrier. Behind that is totally nothing. And where is totally nothing you cannot go. Try it on your birthday, dividing 0 cakes among your family. 10 / 0 = 'error'....

    If not empty void of matter, then likely just more universe.

    Maybe other universes like ours. That is an oxymoron, as UNIverse is the one whole containing all.

    Theories abound, but to be realistic there are the laws of physics.

    Einstein, Neil De Grass Tyson, and Steven Hawking may have better insight for this subject.

    To have an outside means some form of boundary, and there is none known.

    If we could know anything about what is "outside" the universe, wouldn't the outside become part of the universe? There is no border to define "inside" or "outside" the universe.
