  • Another theory is based on ancient Greek mythology about Atlantis. The said drowned were like you said humans and they were way forward for their time, building structures for gods and having technology way advanced than anybody else. In fact, the technology was so great that even the gods were jealous, and tasked poseidon (or neptune, whichever) to sink it. However instead of turning into atlanteans, they turned into drowned.

Now this could be just a game mechanic so you don't have to travel very far or it could mean that they get really close to the treasure but still never made it to the heart of the sea

  • I think the drowned happened first then they killed humans and made zombies they escaped to the nether but that was a bad Idea and they tried to revive there fallen because there species was dying out so they created the wither it they tried to escape through the portal but it followed them through containing the knowledge of those who had died then they tried to find refuge from the already existing zombies skeletons and of course the wither in there strongholds but they were found and had to escape to the end where they found something much worse the enderdragen and were trapped they eventually evolved into the endermen and you free them when you defeat the enderdragon you were sent by the gods of this world to free there people and now you mission is complete thats why its called the end

  • I think that the ones who built the hearts were the same as the ones who made the sea temples. The "technology" seems very similar. I think perhaps the inventors of the sea temples created these hearts as a plan to speed up the process as you said, and saw success in it. They would sell these items to other civilizations who had the same problems. Ships from the other civilizations would come to certain meeting-places marked on their maps to complete the transactions with the temple-builders, and get items back with them to their homes. But suddenly the water would rise even more. The hearts were of no use anymore. The transportation ships who were heading towards the meeting-places got swallowed by the sea. The sellers of the hearts and other items would flee in fear as the waves came crashing down on the land, leaving behind the heavy chests at the marked locations. As the water poured in over the land, the chests would get covered up in sand, resting under the sea-floor for thousands of years. Waiting for you to find them. In the meanwhile, the temple-builders would come up with a last effort for survival. This is the point in time where they would create the guardians, before they would all sink to the bottom of the ocean. I have not thought alot more about this, but I do have an idea of what the guardians may be? This is just a silly thought, but what if the guardians were attempts at giving humans the ability to live underwater? Maybe experiments with technology and fish, as they are made of rock, crystals, and random fish parts (the dead fish they drop on death), trying to see how they would make that work for humans aswell? Or maybe they were supposed to merge with humans, but merged with the fish?
