  • When hus head crazhed through the nether it gave me an idea. In stranger things the upside down can only be accessed by a portal but is sometimes portayed as literally a world under us so what is bedrock in the overworld and bedrock in the nether are one in the same. And thats why we can only go there by portal

  • your right but what if Steve was a runaway from the illagers because they trained him and since that he ran away because he knew that they were doing bad magic and thats why he ran away and the illager picked him because of his life produce because of how steve can give life to many built mobs or because he can give much life force to the iron glomes and the snowman and the iron glome that is left out were built by the old builders who turned ender men they builded him because they new they couldnt survive long enough and steve when he dies he respawn because he has the power to resurrect from the dead because from learning from the illiager and the builders couldn't because they didnt have the power to resurrect they builded the iron glome because to protect the villiagers from getting kidnapped.

  • I have idea. You can get soul boosts so one person can drop something like 5 souls. I don’t think soils and death are directly related. It’s not 1 to one. A soul is not how we as humans think it means. A soul is not someone’s person instead it’s a something. A species in of itself. Something that live within things but not a spirit, to me they are like water bears, they are just everywhere but only noticeable in certain conditions. When we decay in the overworld they just go poof. But in the nether they get trapped with the curse of the nether (as I call it).

  • So if Lapis is used to magically infuse evil into Villagers, and Lapis is also used to infuse Weapons and Tools with Magic, then.... What is XP? Is XP also Souls...? It serves, basically, as the raw magic that binds effects into Tools, or at least, the energy, and you get it, typically, from killing living things. Of course, you can also get it from ores and smelting/cooking. I think XP is something worth exploring.

  • Another theory for why theyre named vindicator is because theyre the underlings of the Evokers. The Evokers wanna believe that they're doing the right thing by trying to find the gods that have long abandoned their world. The vindicators are meant to vindicate them by killing any would be dissenters.

  • The wool illiger statue in the room of the woodland mansion is probably the arch illiger mentioned in Minecraft dungeons. This is due to the yellow wool in front of it I think is the top of a staff, the same staff the arch illiger has in Minecraft dungeons.

  • Soul sand much like coal is just decomposed bodies but the souls are trapped inside and the reason why you are slowed down is these souls begging for help by trying to slow you down to free them - but that’s just my theory on soul sand because it makes sense

  • I did the google thing, and "evocation" is the action of invoking a spirit or deity. "the evocation of wandering spirits" and to "evoke" is to invoke (a spirit or deity), or to "call up; cause to appear; summon: to evoke a spirit from the dead.". You probably already know this, but it saves you the time if you want to look.
