The outernet is the region of cyberspace where data travels once it has been erased from a computer's memory. It is coloquially referred to as "data limbo" and is not to be confused with "data hell" or the undernet where evil data such as viruses, spam and messages from your parents go. There is also the uppernet, or "data heaven", which is stricly for lost pornography and pronography. These are in fact subsections of the Outernet. It is somewhat similar to the catholic idea of Purgatory however with fewer free sandwiches.
The Outernet came into being in 1993 when George W. Bush's mother, Barbara "the Fish" Bush caught him surfing the website www.hotmidgetsexmonkeysfromarmenia.com in what internetologists have come to call The Day of a Thousand Tears. In her rage she demanded that her then salsa partner and part time lover Bill Clinton destroy the internet completely.
Despite Al "Flying Dawg" Gore pleading the lord imperator of the United States of Hysteria sent a searing bolt of legislative fury at the then infant internet. 90% of the data (at that time only 1/32nd of the internet was pornographic based) was caste asunder. The lord creator Al Gore intervened and used the last of his mojo juice given to him by the green cyber monk of Kathmandu mixed with a Krispy Kreme donut and smeared it all over his 28.8k external modem.
This saved the structure of the internet but unfortunately only 10% of its data could be recovered. The rest was scattered the four winds. Thus his holiness Al Gore created the Outernet deep in the fabric of space time upon which the cursed data was sucked into.
The decades following the publication of "Scientology" brought vast amounts of new knowledge into existence as well as groundbreaking advances in technology. As Scientology has taught us that correlation implies implication, this is generally attributed to Scientology. In particular we now know the following truths: 75 million years ago, Xenu©, the tyrant alien ruler of the Galactic Confederacy, a group of 76 nearby planets, hatched an evil plan.
Because the confederacy was suffering from overpopulation, he told billions of his fellow aliens that they were being taken to earth for tax auditing, and brought them here in spacecraft resembling Douglas DC-8 airliners. Xenu© stacked the spacecraft around volcanoes and detonated hydrogen bombs inside the volcanoes, killing all the aliens inside, but inadvertently releasing their souls, or Thetans©. Xenu© ordered the capturing and brainwashing of these Thetans©, and once performed, allowed these indoctrinated creatures to remain on earth as humans began to evolve, where they attach themselves to humans and contribute to the problems that plague human civilisation.
The thetan©, is trapped in matter, energy, space and time, "MEST". Scientology aims to restore the thetan© to a state of "total freedom" from MEST to rid the ©thetan of "engrams©", recordings of distressing experiences from this and previous lives.
