There exist closed systems and even then It is perfectly possible to be fully outside an open system just as it is to be fully outside a closed one. Now, if something is both inside and outside, then there are mechanisms by which that something interacts with the system. If you read my question, I think you will find that it was "what are these mechanisms?"
