The world of Minecraft is vast and pretty well explored... except for one place. You see, we've covered a LOT of Minecraft on this channel, and in doing research for all of that I've noticed that one place remains mostly undiscovered - or at least un-theorized! The underwater biome of Minecraft is FULL of weird creatures and tons of interesting lore, if you know where to look. Spoiler alert, I do! Today we are diving into old Gods, ancient ruins, and more! Get your scuba gear ready, Theorists!

Matpat, in minecraft when you're in spectator mode and right click a mob you can see what it sees. I found it really weird that the elder guardian doesn't actually have a special thermal vision

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

Why does everyone assume being visually invisible still makes you visible in IR or radar? Visible light and IR are part of the same spectrum. With current tech the closest thing we’ve literally gotten to an invisibility cloak is being “invisible” to the longer wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum like microwaves and radio waves. Infra red is the next target on the way to visible light.

The problem with people caring about exploring the ocean is, it's too difficult to get your hands on Depth Strider or Respiration in this game, We would need to be able to last a lot longer or be able to swim a lot faster in order to get anything done, and even then you'd need top of the line of both of those is get anywhere in terms of exploring the sea.

I know this is late but I think the guardians are not necessarily robotic, they drop fish implying their insides are similar to fish meat and the shards they drop could be their scales and that’s what the prismarine is made of which would mean it’s possible they built the monuments themselves and the monument could be a sort of nest for them as well as to house their elder guardian and it explains why they are very territorial because the monument is their home it’s like ants or bees defending their nest. The whole laser thing could be magic or something like that. The gold in the monument I can’t explain but one thing that’s interesting is that drowned have a chance to drop gold ingots. Another interesting thing is that you can find sponges within the ocean monuments as well.
