Idea:EXPLAIN WITCHES AND MAGIC! YOU MENTION MAGIC AND YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN ANY EXPLANATION.(I think it might be more of alchemy the magic since my view of alchemy is taking One or multiple things and putting them together and getting some thing of equal value)all who Are angry at Matt Pat because he hasn’t explained how Minecraft magic/alchemy works right in the replies “ I want to be a wizard”

Smaller details i think about a lot when thinking about the lore of minecraft- what does the elytra mean for the lore of minecraft, why is it only found in the end, and why can it be repaired with phantom membranes, drops by phantoms which only exist in the overworld? Also, on the topic of phantoms, why are they considered undead? Why are cats able to keep them at bay by hissing when they get close? And why do they only come after the player if they havent slept for a long time? Why do piglins/hoglins 'fear' or at the very least run away from soul fire? What properties does minecrafts lightning have? It turns pigs into zombified piglins, although that may change in coming updates, it supercharges creepers, and the strangest i feel is that it turns villagers into witches. Theres also the four horsemen easter egg that involves lightning striking a skeleton on a skeleton horse and turning it into four, but i feel im able to just chalk that up to being nothing more than an easter egg. Perhaps a less interesting question is why are 'cave spiders' found only in mineshafts, despite their name, and why are they smaller and poisonous? Finally, the infection having a cure is interesting, along with the igloos in tundras where someone seems to have been experimenting to find the cure. On top of that, villagers have a 'gossip' system about you, and to avoid getting too complex with explaining it, when you cure a villager, your gossip level is increased significantly. Is that from the cured villager themselves? Or is the village talking about you curing one of them? I fi t is from the villager themselves, how do they know they were cured? were they conscious of their actions as a zombie? They seem to be able to carry a normal life once cured, so does being infected not affect ones memory of how to simply operate in life?

Mattpat when are you going to do a theory on ghasts. There’s an achievement in minecraft where you bring a ghast to the overworld and kill it “and the achievement description says :*rescue a ghast and bring it home, then kill it* and has mechanical parts in the bestiary. Suggesting it originates from the overworld and perhaps is made by the old builders. It also drops a tear when it dies which also suggests this. And theres also an unused ghast sound called: ghast’s affection. Likely supposed to be used when you rescue one

what if the zombies look like us because they ARE us? What if us builders fled for the strongholds for protection, when the over world was overrun by monsters? When you spawn into a world, maybe youre the last person running to the stronghold, but then you stop to think about what you’re leaving behind, and that’s why you’re still while spawning? The zombies are perhaps the people that didn’t make it in time, and the villagers are ones that opted to stay, and made Iron Golems as protectors?

Hey wanted to add that in the aquatic update in the tutorial if you go to the ice biome, you can find the previous tutorial, the one before the aquatic update, is under the water and ice. To me it seemed like it was important to lore, but maybe not.

Theory: How df does gravity work? All mobs( excluding the ones that can fly) fall down to the ground just like the player which is pretty normal. But then we have the blocks which except all can float in the air without any care and defy our gravity ( with some exceptions like gravel or sand). How does this work. Why does this happen?

Theory: Time is different in the nether, If 1 block in the nether is 8 block in the overworld that explains that 1 second just to walk to another block is 8 seconds in the overworld to walk 8 blocks, Clock doesn't work in the nether so that might be a prove that this is right

Well, the infection looks like the most accurate hypothesis. I mean, the nether wastes exists, and the mobs that spawn there are zombified piglin, and the warped forest only spawns endermen. Also consider blue fire scaring piglins and piglins fighting wither skeletons and warped fungus scaring hoglins. They must be afraid or angry for some reason, like those things don't belong in the nether.

just a side theoryof mine. hasnt much to do with how the world of Minecraft actually works, just more about the player, and the players jurney. okay so before I start explaining the theory, I want to note how we as humans learn and therefor most likely how Steve learns to... before you know something, you cant recognise it, it most likely glances over you, and you never think about it. its like it doesnt exist, and in your brain it doesnt. BUT the second you registers it, think about it, and make a note about it (in your brain) its suddenly everywhere! you find it more easely, and you can learn more about it. so. what if all the uppdates Minecraft gets is kind of a story about Steve's jurney? that all we have in Minecraft today, has always been in Minecrafts world? its just, Steve traveling further, finding more biomes, finding new things to craft, learning new ways to travel, finding new species of animals and new enemies, digging deeper into the gruond, swimming deeper in the ocean, goin further into Nether, Exploring more of the End and how the End Portal works and discovering so much more of the worlds, whilst revelutionising his technology!

Okay, so if the Villagers and us, the Player, are immune to this virus ... how did we get immune? We just got to the overworld, which means our immune system should not succeed. What is more likely is that we are created by the Builders with an already stable immune system. Edit: It is also obvious that we aren't born from Builders. Something must be protecting us from the disease. In addition, mobs already in the overworld are immune because they've been there before. It's the direct contact with zombies that change Villagers. But ... why are we immune; why are Pillagers immune? It's safe to assume that we are fully immune from the virus, while the Pillagers found a cure through magic.

Vshaan 4 dager siden
For those who say zombies spawn in the nether, there is a reason (Idk if it’s still a thing in the current versions). On hard mode, zombies have a small chance when hit to spawn another zombie, in like a reinforcement kind of way. Zombified piglins by process, who can also break down doors like zombies, also have this ability. But the catch is that instead is spawning another zombified piglin, it spawns a normal zombie, or even a zombie villager. I don’t know if this is still a thing on the newer versions but back then that was the case.
