SUBSCRIBE to never miss a Theory! ►
The world of Minecraft is vast and pretty well explored... except for one place. You see, we've covered a LOT of Minecraft on this channel, and in doing research for all of that I've noticed that one place remains mostly undiscovered - or at least un-theorized! The underwater biome of Minecraft is FULL of weird creatures and tons of interesting lore, if you know where to look. Spoiler alert, I do! Today we are diving into old Gods, ancient ruins, and more! Get your scuba gear ready, Theorists!

    Or the 23 pillars are just how it is built because of the dimensions of it? It's like saying that the desert temples are all the same size or that the original villager huts are all the same dimensions

    Ok I know you already uploaded the second video and I should probably watch that before committing more but I was thinking of this last night so I'm going to say it before I forget (question, do you even read these comments?) Let's say endermann were humans, they get hurt when they touch water (flowing and rain) and if your saying is true that they build the monuments to escape the water then maybe that is why they have an entire room for sponges That would also explain why strongholds are underground But there are other things that bother me like the fact that monuments aren't flooded they are literally under the ocean and they are guarded by mechanical FISH, it's like THEY aren't afraid of water There is also the fact that most locations have monster spawners, the temples have trapes and monuments have guardians, so if there were human they weren't really getting along My theory is that skeletons(all types), zombies(all types) and enderman were all human but their inhumanity drove them to become monsters (the same as when a villager gets struck by lightning it turns into a witch, but the human did it on purpose), the enderman could have gone to the end for protection but got a reckless protector and use the fruit to gain the ability to teleport (trough potions, curses, ect), zombies might have have changed to gain the ability to not have to eat or something, drownds so they can breath under water, skeletons probably the same reason as zombies, wither skeletons could use the heat of the nether to give them fire resistance

    I hope Mattpat goes over desert temples soon. As well as the history of the husks. If the world ended to global warming, maybe they got the opposite end of the disaster spectrum. Being burned and dried out. Maybe that's why their treasure room is so deep? To escape the burning surface.
