For inside we have words like inhere, fill, occupy.

Do you know any words that mean "be/exist outside of or beyond"? The closest I can think of is exceed as in "This island exceeds any map known to man." or "The object exceeded the observable radius." Another option is surround but that would imply that it's all over.

Thank you!
