    out there?

    Is "out there" "in the world" or "outside of here"? I used to hear this as the meaning of "in the world", but there's no definiton for that in the dictionary.

    ex)You see the world as one big contest, where everyone is competing against everybody else. You feel that there is a set amount of good and bad fortune out there....

    Re: out there?

    To me, it's the wider world outside whatever closed place or system (home, school, etc) the person is speaking from.
