three realms, three territories, or three domains
In Buddhism there is a term called "three realms", "three territories", or "three domains". Does it mean that beyond the world we live there still exist other two realms?

RE: three realms, three territories, or three domains
The three realms are

(1) The desire realm, where one is preoccupied by desires for physical gratification.
(2) The form realm, where one is free from the desires for physical gratification and experiences subtle form.
(3) The formless realm, where one is free from material existence. This is the locus of the practice of the Four Formless Concentrations.

From such definition you can easily get an answer to the question you raised.
