  • Why am I getting mad Atlantis vibes from all of this? I mean, the sunken monument? The very similar looking fish-like gua- *HOLD UP I HAVE A THEORY!!* The ocean monument is sunken Atlantis, and the guardians are the vehicle-like stone fish in the movie, just modified so that they kind of live. :>

  • I think the Drowned were builders who started their own culture, as they were more religious, worshipping gods while the other builders thought they were the gods. They split up and the ocean swallowed them, meanwhile the wither defeated the builders, and that’s why zombies can become drowned, they are the same species at heart.

  • Questions: How would the people access the monument if there was no staircase from the sea floor up Why were the guardians designed to be water based if the temple was dry when they were created. How would a human navigate the temple if the only way to travel through is swimming. Why do elder guardians give miner fatigue and how is that possible. Where does heart of the sea come from. Lots of holes in the theory.

  • My theory is that there was once a global flood. This would line up with the real life biblical account of the event. It would also explain why the ruined underwater structures were left abandoned. Entire villages maybe used to be below the current sea level, but this global flood came and destroyed their homes, leaving them in ruin. The flood also moved around large amounts of dirt and sediments, resulting in the sand or gravel-covered ocean bottoms. More than that, the flood brought so much water that it completely covered over the tops of the monuments, rather than just coming part of the way up, leaving a space for the priests to stand on.

  • Cancel culture is so toxic

  • One slight detail Matpat missed but it fits the theory to a tee. When you find the Heart of the Sea and craft a Conduit, it only activates if surrounded by prismarine, the crucial material of the Ocean Monument. Perhaps this is why the prismarine monuments were crafted, to house the sacred Conduit that could save their civilization. But it never came...
