  • 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.

  • Maybe the reason endermen dont like you looking at them is because they know that they've become so monster like, and dont want you to see them the way they are. Quite a stretch since other mobs arent attacked while looking into their eyes, but it might be worth a look

  • Maybe Enderman don't attack you when you have a pumpkin on your head because it reminds them of the nature from the Overworld, which also explains why they pick up flowers? Crazy cool theory! 👌

  • Just wanna point out fir one thing. You said that, that the "Ancient Builders" are transformed into the Endermans. But you also said it happened when the "Ancient Builders" went in there. But, then where did the builders get the enderpearls? How did they build the end portal, when the portal is probably have been built by the same material that the end is made from? My theory is that the endermans are ROBOTS. Thats why they are bringing blocks to a random place, because the ancient builders built them for bring materials for a new home, because they were hiding from the mobs (zombies skeletons etc.). I think thats how the end got build, because the endermans are robots and theres an enderpearl generator something in them (thats why they can teleport). The reason the ancient builders built a one-way travel, is because there were too many dangerous mobs in the overworld; and why come back, when the endermans can travel through the end and the overworld, and can bring materials.

  • Idk about the ender dragon oppression part. The crystals that keeps the dragon invincible, where they’re placed, and how some even have cages around them doesn’t make sense since this video is saying that’s more of a natural phenomenon rather than man made. To me it almost feels like they could’ve returned at any time but most chose not to while some did. Because if this theory is correct then enderman shouldn’t spawn in the overworld. And the only way they could is through the ender dragon. But if they could return then the idea of the ender dragon preventing them from leaving also falls apart. I do think a lot of details made sense but idk about the ender dragon part.

  • What if the ancient ones who built the temples where from a part of minecraft that is just more advanced but due to some reason they left or died after being there long enough to make said places and things. I mean look at IRL some countries have better technology then others and travel between the two is no longer possible. I mean IRL example I could go to say Japan but not knowing there language or social gracious and not to mention a poor immunity to that climates airborne bugs and such I would have a hard time staying there. Best case I find a group that speaks English and get help I need to get back home worse case I never make it back home cause I die of some reason. In the game it would be safe to say going home would not be a option for them as they need things they no longer have and staying put became to dangerous as the airborne zombie virus killed most of them and the rest made those places to flee but as you said got stuck there and became the first of them and some time later some managed to come back to get help from where the game starts with you. But like me going to Japan your guy doesn't speak that foreign language so to him it's all noise even though we here it in english.

  • I think it's pretty obvious that the Enderman were the creatures threating this ancient race. They had to use ender eyes in order to reach the end. Either this means the Enderman are a different ancient race or they're humans who turned into ender men before the vast majority did

  • What if the enderman and the piglin lived together in the overworld in peace but were forced to different dimensions in order to escape the growing force of the undead. The endermen went to the end while the piglin went to the nether. The reason why the piglin attack you is because they think you are carrying the undead virus that caused them to escape the overworld. Zombie piglin aren't entirely zombified. They don't fear the virus that you might carry that's why they don't attack you. Zombie piglin were able to find a way to stop the virus from taking over but they can't infect others. While living in the overworld piglins and endermen worked together. Piglins protected the endermen while they built. Endermen crated the strongholds to be sure the piglin couldn't get in if they were infected. Without their means of crafting the piglin had to find a way to build something to escape. The different tribes created nether portals around the world to escape but they were unstable. That's why we find broken nether portals around the overworld. The portals exploded on themselves after the piglin went through them.

So end stone looks like cobblestone." another person: "Hmm, maybe their eyes adjusted with their form, and start to believe this strange dimension is like their old home. Having an inverse human stare at you would startle them, and make them attack you."

  • Hold on a sec, what about these “entities” people talk about, like herobrine (yea he’s fake) but entities like Entity303 or Null who is in fact a complete blacked out skin figure and both are capable of manipulating the game with code. What if one of these 2 entities are one of the citizens from the past, the end is an incomplete dimension that was created using code and it’s funny how a command black is also summoned with a command even tho there really is a way to build them (going off of Minecraft story mode).

  • MATTHEW!! WHAT IF, this is probably dumb but WHAT IF the portal didn't just randomly close off and leave them stranded in the end to fight the dragon... WHAT IF the portal stayed open at first and they CREATED the dragon as a defender to stop any nasty folks or the Wither from coming in and messing up their new home BUT THEN the wonderful dragon they made went rogue and destroyed the portal? Your later theories have them creating living beings like the warden and iron golems. If I'm right and they could travel back and forth then maybe that's what the illagers saw. They saw the master builders going back and forth but then when the portal was destroyed they didn't know how to fix it so they start doing the whole make a woolen portal thing. ANYWAY yeah! Good talk.

  • A small problem with this theory is that you keep saying that they went to the end, and made the end city’s, but they had to use that little bedrock portal thing to get the extended part of the end. And in order to spawn that they have to kill the ender dragon. So they it seems kind of unlikely that they could get the bedrock and end portal blocks necessary to make the portal. Just a thing I thought of when watching this. :)

  • uhhh you only go to the end city AFTER killing the ender dragon and you said that the ancient builders COULDN'T beat the ender dragon so there should be no end city and no endermen in the far end and there is only one place that spawn's chorus fruit is the far end and you can get to the far end by killing the ender dragon and going through the 1 block wide portal, you can also grow chorus fruit by planting the chorus flower it on end stone but to get the chorus flower you need to go the the far end and somehow endermen also spawn in the overworld and the nether. Also to activate the end portal you need eyes of ender and to craft a eye of ender you need a ender pearl and blaze powder but to get a ender pearl you need to KILL a enderman but if the ancient builders became the endermen then how did they get the ender pearls needed to craft the eyes of ender? To support this when you go to creative mode you can get a end portal frame you can put a eye of ender in it but decoration blocks you never see a end portal frame with a eye of ender or a loaded end portal frame you only see a end portal frame and a eye of ender.

    • There’s another theory behind the endermen. They reason why they drop pearls is because they harvest them from shulkers, that’s how they teleport and the reason why there’s a one block portal to the end city. Maybe the portal was deactivated soon after the dragon had appeared by the mass amount of energy created by the crystals

  • 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-

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!
