The quote text already said "nothing in nibbāna". So nibbāna is not place, because "place" mean "area for earth, water, fire, wind, world, sun, moon, coming, going, stasis, arising and pass away".cappuccino wrote:"There is that dimension where there is neither earth, nor water, nor fire, nor wind; … neither this world, nor the next world, nor sun, nor moon. And there, I say, there is neither coming(=nothing born), nor going, nor stasis; neither passing away nor arising (=no birth): without stance, without foundation, without support. This, just this, is the end of stress."

The reading make the reader cut some part off pali tipitaka. Just the pali tipitaka memorizer can under stand the whole story.
