  • This is a possibly pointless detail, but when you look from the enderman's eyes in spectator mode, the colors are reversed. So end stone looks like cobblestone.

    • @tom shaw Well the end was originally the home of the ender dragon and ONLY the ender dragon, the dragon probably saw the humans as a threat so it attacks them. The humans are left to become enderman and stuck with the dragon.

  • My guess about the ender pearls is that since they were so advanced they were somehow able to create them, since we aren't as advanced we can't craft them. Also the reason they drop them when they die is maybe they have an inventory too so they just have ender pearls on them, and if you play minecraft then you know you drop/lose your items and they fall on the ground where you died/ were killed (unless you turn on cheats and play with keep inventory on). This is my thought on that. tho that is only me-

  • I only have 1 problem with this theory. If this was true and we take a look at the chest in the ender ships we can see that these guys were very well equiped. With what you get from end loot you can beat the dragon preaty easily. And you are alone. there are tousands of enderman so they should've been able to kill the dragon. Exept that its a preaty good theory

  • I think that the dragon was created by the humans. The massive bone structures in the nether might be what have the original humans ender eyes. That's why they are all dead. So the endermen that went back to the overworld were sent there to create the stronghold and disable the portal. They knew that eventually what ever was after them would die out, or go home. The outline could have been the problem. The endermen with there new found powers of teleportation trapped them in the nether. A bastion is also considered a highly sucure stronghold. So the dragon would be a line of defense. Then why would the make the dragon if they were waiting for their heir, you to free them. The dragon keeps the portal closed! So when you free the end, it isn't freeing them from oppression but fear of the overworld!

  • The theory of Minecraft evolution, what is the villagers are the previous split of You are split half of a century old rendition, and then split it off again to make Enderman… Confusing right?

    • The players might even be stronger than the previous civilization, but not smarter....Which would mean there is convergent evolution with the crafting tables on the player and the villagers...

  • If the endermen are the ancient humans that got trapped in the end then how'd they get the ender pearls necessary to make the eyes of ender for the portal? Were there endermen before them? Maybe an even older civilisation even more advanced than them that too found it's demise in the end and transformed into the endermen?

  • The first time I went to an abandoned mineshaft, I was immediately curious who built them but nobody else I talked to seemed interesting. So I completely ignored my questioning and went on with my life until I stumbled across this video which very strangely I found through a Dream animatic. Anyway, you've sparked up my question again, and now I want to explore the lore of Minecraft as well. As one of my favourite games for its creativity and complexity, figuring out its hidden lore is so interesting to me. Thank you for making me interested again!

  • there is a problem though! people can build portals, but can never break the portal, meaning nobody actually went to the end, else the portal room would have a full portal.
