In my last Minecraft episode, I peeled back the mysterious layers of the Minecraft Illagers. In that, I talked about how the Illagers were looking to build their own Minecraft worlds - from portals to Steve himself. There was something else that I wasn't able to cover in that episode, and that is how Minecraft Illagers relate to the history of what is known as cargo cults.

What if we’re all cargo cultists that copy how past “gods” lived. Think about if see somebody do something for say, build a box. You could be influenced to build your own box. And you keep doing it. Hoping something happens. Somebody builds a house, well heck! Now you want your own house. We want different things to be ours. It’s interesting to think about..

Nope don’t agree the ancient race got desperate and tried to bring friends back (the wither) and then they toyed with with magic as seen with the non enchanted swords and armpit in the nether but highly enchanted in the end so they payed the price by becoming ender men

So basically the history of the ancient civilization are that they originated from the end before the ender dragon existed made a portal to the overworld, soon forgot about their old home to research the overworld, generations later they evolve to look like the player, their original home forgotten and only a mere legend, they become obsessed with research discovering the nether, they accidentally make the wither skeleton and the wither and as a last attempt to prevent their race's extinction go look for the legendary stronghold now in ruins holding the now broken portal to their ancestors home, they activate it but they find something not written about in the legends, in the absence of the civilization the end has now become the territory of an ender dragon the lost god of the end, with no way out the ancient civilisation must learn to co-exist with the dragon, they find a way to make an island to capture the dragon in making crystals for the dragon to rely on for survival making it inable to escape, they find chorus fruit and evolve into the endermen now under the dragons tyranny still mad that they had captured her in her own home. Back in the overworld, only remnants remain of the existence of the ancient civilization till one day a new player randomly appears destined to set his ancestors free from the dragon.

wouldn't it make more sense for the liligers to want to go after the ancient builders because they didn't quite get it and they saw them go into the end portal rather then the builders coming back and then leaving again?

wait, according to your first episode on minecraft lore, the builders fled to the End. This makes sence with what you said in this video about them coming from the End, since obviously they knew how to get to the End. However, this leads to a bit of a quandry. In the End, the builders turned into endermen because of the food they were forced to eat. But if they were already there, then what came out of the End portals should have been endermen, unless there is a 4th dimension, one unaccesable to us. What if, in addition to the overworld, nether, and End, there is another dimension, a Beginning, if you will, one that is almost opposite the End. Once you leave, you cannot return. But the builders didn't know that. When they tried to flee the Wither, they activated the portal and went somewhere different entirely, into the End. This theory also explains why the Builders had eyes of ender. There was a way to get them in the beginning. Now, the Illagers are trying to find a way to bring back the builders, their friends, but have lost the ability to craft over time, and are reduced to building wool end portals. However, there is little to no hope of them returning. They realize that something is missing. Otherwise there would be more Illagers around them, like in the cargo cult video matpat showed us. Instead, they seem to be trying to preserve their building abilities in the hope that, one day, someone will find a secret, some clue, to help them craft once more, and bring back builders. The main hole in this is that there is no possible way to prove the existance of a Beginning. So, I have one question for you, that probably doesn't answer this one, but might. What is creative mode?

or maybe there were humans living in the Minecraft world and they build all these things and the villagers were like the minority that had the power to summon iron golems whenever they got scared or felt as if they were going to die, and then the opocolypes happened and all human turned into zombies and Steve was the only one left. The reason that they have wool of staves clothing is because their trying to bring back the humans because they saw them use all theses things that they made and they anna do the same. Idk its kind of a bumpy one because there are a lot of gray areas but i think its a good theory to think about.

So withthe cargo cult thing and the illagers trying to mimic what they saw with wool, why would they make beds out of wool and carpet, especially if they are villagers that were kicked out of their original dwellings. Not only are beds already in villages for the villagers, but according to your train of thought with the theories, villagers have been there since before or around the same time as the ancient builders.

here's my theory: the illagers were aware of the builders, villagers being descendants of them. They get ambitious, and experiment to try and recreate the builders but are unsuccessful. Their ambitions and crimes get them exiled. They then continue their ambitions, attempting to reach the end.

I just realized something. Herobrine has supposedly removed from the game but what if like William Afton he was supposed to die but lives on in his followers. In this case it would be the illagers would be the followers trying to being herobrine back to life.

They saw not one but three things came out of the End Portal. The two "Gods" that talk about the Player's achievement in the Ending. And also, the Player (Steve). Long, long ago... Illagers and Builders (now Endermen) were enemies who wanted each others' unique abilities - illagers' secret of immortality and Builders' powers of creativity. War happened and Builders fled to The End. Illagers tried to mimic Builders' creativity but fail. Some illagers decided that in order to be "creative", one must forfeit immortality - thus, becoming "villagers" and kicked villagers who still practice immortal voodoo magic out of their settlements. Thousands of years go by, suddenly Steve appeared out of the supposedly deactivated End Portal (alongside "God" aka Creative Mode Steve and "Observer God" - who both talk about Steve's accomplishments in The Ending). Steve shows tremendous power of immortality (but his immortality isn't just "live very long", he can resurrect upon death) and creativity. Illagers feared Steve being the revenge of the Builders sent the monsters that they had "created" over the years at Steve at night. And that's it. That's all I could come up with this whole thing.

Almost anyone: The ancient society of builders could have just become zomb- Mat: No, that's too easy. The builders must have turned into wither skeletons and endermen.

I feel after watching these two illager theories, that maybe they are struggling to figure out how the master builders were so smart, amd trying to reproduce and study what they deemed to be important facets (e.g. animals like the cat were important in Egypt) to try and discover where they went wrong with the Wither and reanimation. The "unspeakable activities" referenced previously were them continuing on experiments even though it nearly cost them everything before. If the theories all hold together and true in the long run that is haha
