  • I wonder if our Steve (and the player) isn’t just a descendant of the original builders but is an actual builder that was somehow cured of his zombie infection. That’s why most of the other zombies look like him and are wearing the same clothes as he is but none of the Villagers or Illagers do. When Pigmen come to the regular world they become Zombie Pigmen within seconds so why are the players immune and don’t contract the Zombie infection even when being attacked like Villagers do?

  • Here’s my theory So I agree about the master builders and how they turned into enderman. I don’t agree that they were fleeing from wither but Zombies. There was a zombie created by lightning like how pigs are turned into zombie piglins. The zombies become so large in population that they flee to neather. They bring their pigs to have a food source but slowly evolve into piglins and zombie pigglins. They then flee from nether because it is dangerous and go to the end. Zombies find them there so they are forced to hop in, but can’t come back. It’s just a theory :)

  • I actually got zombies to spawn in the nether multiple times. All I was doing was farming zombie piglins for xp, and every now and then as more would spawn to kill me, some normal zombies would spawn along with them. Not sure if it's relevant to the theory, but it was consistent enough for me.

    Malen'kiyMalen'kiy2 päeva tagasi
  • Piglins resorted to cannibalism before nether wart, so they dont have psychic link (since they hunt hoglins) or maybe have a mixed diet Hoglins eat crimson fungus so they probably have an underdeveloped set of psychic connection We were a villager who didn't like the simple life and left the village (hence the ability to spawn a bonus chest or map before you leave - the things you brought with you) Shulkers, magma cubes, ghasts, and slimes all need some study

    Portal Popsickle _Portal Popsickle _3 päeva tagasi
  • I think you forgot something Matt. Infectious diseases normally don't spread from one species to another, unless there's a mutation in the virus or bacteria. Even in that case, there would have to be extensive exposure from the piglins to our atmosphere for it to finally be affected by a mutated virus. This might mean that piglins are a descendant of the original race of humans who went to the nether? Maybe a video talking about the nether ecosystem and why the piglins aren't attacked by ghasts is in order?

    aguiaraguiar3 päeva tagasi
  • this makes total sence to me

    Sophie B.Sophie B.3 päeva tagasi
  • My theory on the video: the ancient civilization first started making structures and eventually gathered technology and created a dimension (which eventually got lost) that brought in villagers with there diseases and the villagers tried secretly experimenting on the civilization and they started to mutate into "creppers" Which carried diseases and everytime they exploded the disease spread (the villagers that experimented got expelled from the village which created "witches" And all of the others at the woodland mansion)

    Unusualcoyote11Unusualcoyote113 päeva tagasi
    • Or the creepers could be a remanicent of the dinosaurs in minecraft that eventually kept evolving with diseases

      Unusualcoyote11Unusualcoyote113 päeva tagasi
  • I have a theory on what zombies and skeletons really are. We all know that the old age of builders fled to end to escape the wither. However I think it makes more since that zombies and skeletons are not failed experiments or anything by else. It makes more sense to me to think that they are the ancient builders that DIDNT go to the end. That monster is called the “wither” after all. My theory is that the builders who stayed in the overworld were defeated and “withered” into zombies and skeletons. Thank you for reading that’s just what I think personally. (Keep in mind I don’t think it’s a virus because the player does not become a zombie after death. In face nothing besides the villagers turns undead after being killed either.)

  • Theory of my son’s but im still putting it down; (he uses matpat’s videos as well) ok so there was a race if anceint builders, they found out portal tech, went to the nether to escape the virus, got some species to evolve, accedently created the wither, it escaped the NETHER, the master builders escaped the wither for a while with fortresses underground, and temples. The monuments got flooded, and the people started running low on resources, so they decided to try and find another escape; the found it and it led them to the end, lets go back to when everyone ws escaping to the end. The silverfish started swarming so two guards were kept to protect the people that were escaping, and almost died, but still, the people escaoed along with many silverfish. The people in the end realized that they were trapped in this jungle area (hey read on) with skulk growth and large creatures they then named the warden. Later on, after the people had evolved into endermen, (large and threatening to scare away any warden, and to pick chorus fruit) a juvinile dragon had been flying and released fury upon the jungle land, burning almost all growth, scorching the land into rock, and with the electric charges in the young dragon’s “fire” it relit the portal for moments. Many wardens escaped with skulk growing on them, but many endermen also escaped. The young dragon then grew up in the now barren end. (Back to the two heros who limited the amount if silverfish who went through the portal) the two heros woke up after everyone had gone. The portal was broken, so they went to loot the fortresses. They found that in the nursery, many children had been left behind, so the two friends (heros) took care of the children. Many of the children died from the virus, so the two left alive were taken care of. Skip to a long time later, these four humans now live in the overworld when one of the hero’s goes mining and goes much farther down than usual, he then starts trying out his new technology, discs. (Play disc 11 and 13 at the same time.) he then hears something chasing after him, he runs. The other hero realises that his friend has been gone for a while and decided to check on him, when he finds the strange path that goes down, he follows it, and then later finds his friend’s remains, and two discs. He plays tye discs and hears what happened. He then vowed to kill off every living being that was able to do harm and out of blind rage, tried to kill the two young, Alex and Steve. Herobrine still waits to find out how to kill them. THERE WE HAVE IT, A SUMMARY OF MY SON’S PERSPECTIVE ON MINECRAFT LORE!

  • Theory: The Nether is where the builders originated from. I know it sounds weird, but the fact that there is "ancient debris," and old destroyed bastions, shows a lot of signs pointing to some race living there for ages. "But maybe the bastions were built at the same time as the fortresses were!" I hear you saying. No, no way, I mean, just LOOK at them! They have holes ALL OVER, and are just DECREPED. If the bastions were built at the same time as the fortresses, the fortresses would look just as bad, if not worse. But then there is the question of "how could the builders live there? Its all fire 'n Blackstone!" well, I propose that the nether is actually just the flaming remnant of a rich, beautiful, thriving world, filled to the brim with technology and science. Just take Netherite! It's not only fire-proof, but also quite resilient against the elements, an incredibly advanced metal, that can't be found literally ANYWHERE but the nether. An asteroid, or war, or any number of other disasters could have turned it into the hellscape we see today, and the builders, seeing that their world was dying, would flee to the overworld. Also soul sand, there is no way that there could be THAT MANY dead builders, I mean you can find soul sand ANYWHERE in the nether, even far, far underground. why would the builders dig THAT far down just to bury their dead? Of course SOME of the soul sand must be from the explorers, but not all of it.
