It came to my mind one day that why does this universe even exist and why do we even exist and like we are enclosed in the so called atmosphere and a floating rock in space called the Earth, so is there any possibility that the universe is also enclosed in something and if it is, then what is outside that enclosure?

That's an interesting question, but as the comments say might be a better place to ask this question in the Philosophy SE site, but the question about the universe being englobed maybe by another much bigger 'space' is something we might never be able to prove right or wrong. This 'existential' question might refer to the holograph theory, the multiverse theory. The thing is, at the moment the only possible explanation of whats beyond the 'observable universe' boundary is nothing, neon, an infinite multi-dimensional plane of nothingness.
