Now that I have started to dive into the deep lore of Minecraft, I think I will be able to map out the ENTIRE in-world history of the game. We've talked about the corrupted music discs and the origin of the Enderme. Today I want to solve the mystery of what started EVERYTHING. What created Minecraft? Well there is this thing called the Wither...

  • I have a theory that the wither isn't artificial, its because of the block with the wither on it. so they knew about it before they summoned it, so its not artificial.

  • Endermen only attack you when you look at their eyes because the PTSD they experience when they look at their former selves(aka you, a human) causes them to go into a frenzy. They wouldn’t be jealous because their sounds and mouths in that state are very abnormal.

  • wait, I just realised something. what if the "end credits" are just the ancient builders talking to each other? I mean, the text clearly says: "I see the player you mean" "[player name]?" clearly, they are sentient, they know you are in a game; they said: "they will have to learn that in the long story of life, not the short story of a game." (btw this is a possible theory, I don't think this will really be used)

  • If they all escaped through the end portal then what caused the wither to stop existing. Wouldn’t there be one at the start of the game and how would the villagers have survived the onslaught?

  • wait so lets say that all that did actually happen, but when you go across some dessert temples you notice a block that does have the shape of a wither- what if people that weren't able to go through the portal lived in the dessert, and as time when by they slowly ran out of food-

  • I wonder what happened to the original Wither, did it die of old age, or did something kill it, say an Iron Golem? I dunno. That’s the only flaw in the theory.

  • There is ONE thing wrong with this: why is the Wither not roaming your minecraft world when you start it? I mean, the ancient people didn't kill it, and not the villagers either...

  • I'm new to this stuff, and this makes a whole lotta sense but what's troubling me is how'd they get ender eyes? I mean the endermen are the ancient builder civilization right? So how'd they get the eyes of ender?

    ToriSenpaiToriSenpai3 päeva tagasi
  • Maybe the endermites are parasites for the enderman's eyes. because, when you throw an Ender eye there's a chance that an endermite might will appear

  • How did they get ender pearls tho and why does the end portal look like its made of endstone? You need to get to the end in order to gain endstone...

    Jonathan FloodJonathan Flood4 päeva tagasi
    • Exactly what I was thinking bruh. How the hell did they get the ender eyes in the first place, I mean if the ender eyes came from them because they evolved to the endermen, how did they have ender eyes before the ancient civilization even evolved to endermen.

      ToriSenpaiToriSenpai3 päeva tagasi
  • Mabey the Enderman forgot how to talk probably that's why they say "what's up" or "the end " probably that's why they say the mixed-up words

  • wait a minute. You can revive the ender dragon, with the stars you get from the wither. So, if your batting the wither it would/could be the beginning of you're ender dragon battle. there for being the end

  • I think that endermites are parasites of enderman. The live in enderman s ender pearls and when you throw one, it breaks and an endermite comes out. But not all enderman have endermites in them. It also explains why enderman hate endermites- they dont like parasites that live in them.

    Harry ReynoldsHarry Reynolds7 päeva tagasi
  • Endermites come from ender pearls, ender pearls are the enderman's eye, so doesn't that mean endermites are parasites in the enderman's eye, so of course the enderman wouldn't like a parasite that crawls around in their eye

    Owl houseOwl house12 päeva tagasi
  • I have a theory on the Enderdragon this is my theory the ender dragon is probably the wither after it reproduced (parthenogenesis wither) that is why there are structures like the obsidian towers and the end city houses the builders had some time to build the insane structures the obsidian towers are a sign of them worshiping a god but the end crystals had some properties they did not expect that healed the Enderdragon. maybe iIshould post this on a different video Edit: so I saw @God of the Cripples comment and I must revise maybe they builders were so desperate when they were about to die they spawned another in hope of them fighting but they did not but instead bred and made more withers until they became the ender dragon

    • No it doesn't. And even if it did, it's not the same as the now correct netherrack texture we have now

      MonarchiaMonarchia8 päeva tagasi
  • what if instead what happened is that the ender dragon itself was a threat. so then after that, they sent a lot of their manpower to go and fight it. when they realized they were fighting a lost battle some flee and make the end cities where they proceed to live while at the overworld they realized they made a huge mistake letting all their manpower go to fight that now they cant protect themselves some die while other go and try to seek out the stronghold. where they go and meet up with all the other enderman and the people that stayed in the overworld died and uh that's it BuT JuSt ReMeMBeR ThaTS JuSt A ThEaRY a GaMe thEoRy

    Brian's StudioBrian's Studio13 päeva tagasi
    • @Brian's Studio how would there be rumors of a dragon when there wasn't even a slight chance someone knew it existed? And if not for the wither, why was the stronghold built?

      MonarchiaMonarchia8 päeva tagasi
    • @Monarchia what if they killed it? It would also be the beginning because they might have tried to find other lands where they can bring back their friends so they heard of the end. And they had also heard of the rumors about the dragon. So they decide that it was a threat so then we go back to the same theory

      Brian's StudioBrian's Studio8 päeva tagasi
    • Then what was the wither for. It was known about by the ancient race, meaning it was summoned. If it was killed, why do we not see ancient ruins of where beacons once stood?

      MonarchiaMonarchia8 päeva tagasi
  • maybe the reason why we have caves in minecraft that go SO deep is because of the wither the holes it created before. i mean i have never seen a cave just go down so deep (besides ravines) so steep, what i normally see in real life is caves that the caves go down but horizontally down not so steep. maybe this could mean that some update in the future may have like a wither room, with a ton of wither stuff, obsidian, coal blocks, soul sand, and we might get a new boss the scattered (a scattered, shattered and split form of the wither) this would be the place where the wither got lost with its so many caves or just somehow died and maybe it could be a post wither fight, maybe the wither room would finally spawn and a new mob would start spawning (similar to the phantoms? those annoying bat like things that attack if you dont sleep) then you could make a wither split into 3. i dunno this all started because 1 person like my comment which was the first sentance and it was just saying ancient made holes. XD

    Failing PigFailing Pig17 päeva tagasi
  • well, it's a good theory, but I have a counter theory for you. First of all, there's the chiseled sandstone and the chiseled red sandstone, the chiseled sandstone is real in the minecraft world, it appears at the desert temples, but the chiseled red sandstone doens't, you will find'em just by crafting, in other words, Steve and Alex make the chiseled red sandstone by themselves, wich opens another question: How would them know how to chisel the Wither. Also, when the wither is summoned, it makes irregular craters and leave wither roses behind, and in the overworld there's NO WITHER ROSE, even roses doesn't exist anymore, they got replaced by the poppy, wich also opens other questions. If the wither have been summoned in minecraft, it have been summoned in the nether, since the bastions are destroyed, there're hordes of zombified piglins and the piglins hate both wither related mobs(wither skeleton and wither itself). And the inexistance of flowers in the nether, I can't think in something for this, but the wither roses are not resistant to lava, I think they WITHERED to death🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
