Everything has to be somewhere - except perhaps Schrödinger's cat.

    Schrödinger's cat was always there. It was either quantumly superpositioned
(both dead and alive), or alive, or dead. But it was never nowhere.

Though, actually, since Schrödinger's cat was a fictional one -- it existed only in his, and anyone
he told it to's mind -- , it was indeed nowhere as a physical entity.

But... Does Shakespeare's Hamlet, who resides in 200 million minds, exist more or less than you
who exist in 1000 at most?
