    Why would the fishermen build guardians that work much better in water than on land if their ocean monuments were originally built on land?

    Why would there be land in Minecraft if there was a tide rise did it go down the drown mine all of the prismarine rebuild it under water and make it so that they got in I think this because drowned can go on land

    this is interesting, most of the lore of mobs are just a lost fight agains life, a desperate will to survive. Surviving, *the* most important part of tge whole game.

    Ok but like the global warming thing can be tied to the previous theories because if mass death occurred because of the Wither, then all those bodies (undead or otherwise) would release a lot of gases (most notably carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrogen which contribute most to global warming) thus causing global warming and the rising waters that would sink this civilization maybe on the other side of the world or at least far enough away from the ones who summoned the Wither to feel the effects of the mass death via global warming (sorry if this doesn't make sense)

    I just figured out something
    With the addition of phantoms, I tested something.
    Everybody knows that the wither will attack anyone and anything that is not undead, so I thought that the wither would surely attack phantoms but when the wither was activated. I did not! I am sure that the wither was not broken because it immediately killed a cow, and the it was not prioritizing other things, because I placed the phantoms while it was idle, and it was still idle after I placed the phantoms, and I placed them like 10 blocks away in the wither’s view.(also I realize the ender man would not attack the weather and vice versa in case you want to make a video on that)(Also the same thing with the phantoms and Enderman)
    Now for my theory,
    I think that phantoms, have been associated with the wither, think about, they’re both hostile, they have the common colors associated with evil of death, and they fit together like puzzle pieces; one can easily break blocks in case someone is under cover, and the other one can easily out-pace the player, even while sprint jumping. Plus, they can both fly. I think it’s pretty plausible.

    So, part of the constructors became enderman and part became the drowned...

    If you're right, Minecraft is a tragedy story.

    I thought about that global warming theory some more. So if that was the reason all the humans died/became something else maybe they tried to reach other planets (if there are any in the Minecraft universe, like apparently it's a lot more complicated than with our solar system) But like what if the nether is literally just Venus or something. I mean, it's hot it's on fire, sooo...
    Yeah I don't even know where I'm going with this

    Who made the maps and why do they have the current level of water? If they were made before the drowned died the water level would be much lower, most likely lower than when the drowned were looking for the heart of the sea yet they have the water level of the present. I think it may have been someone who could see the future that wrote a map telling them where to go but they didnt know that the water was different so no one found it.

    I’m confused. If the temples were made before the rising tides and the guardians to protect said temples, then why are the guardians fish-like in design? They do little more than flop around above water.

    I kind of wonder if Steve isn't the last descendant of that culture. After all, he is the only living being that looks the way he does. The villagers are clearly different and when they become zombies they are still clearly different. The Drowned and the regular zombies, however, are the only other beings that share those looks. It would make sense if a few survivors managed to escape deeper inland and set up a new civilization there only to meet some later cataclysm that turned THEM into undead, as well. Additionally, Steve seems to be more technologically knowledgeable than the villagers. He can build complex redstone machines that the villagers just do not have. Maybe another Atlantis-style link to this ancient civilization.

    What if they where all fleeing from Herobrine not the wither and Steve is Herobrines twin or other half and inorder to free his curse from the land you had to defeat the bosses-main enemy of said area eg the nether has the wither that says when spawned and killed the achievement of the beginning as in the first step to breaking the curse and the killing of the enderdragon or the end achievement to be the freeing of those Enderman
