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!

im sorry man, but this looks like a weapon. the guardians are the small mobile variance of the structure. Gold core being the power source and the room full of sponges looks more like a manufacture room. get me this, another hypothesis, it's a guardian assembly line. when the structure is active, it grabs and converts sponges into guardians, over time the sponge some how, converts into a crystal over time, then eventually rebuilding itself into a bigger guardian. on the other hand, Since the structure is under water . Fish can swim into the room and accidently be built into guardians, like a case around them, but these guardians never become the bigger ones since the fish cannot turn into a crystal. therefore, when these mobs are defeated, they drop a sponge, fish, or crystal. as for the bigger ones, they drops crystal(s).

It seems to me that the ocean monuments are supposed to flood up to but not including the altar at the top. That's may be why the guardian's need to be able to survive out of the water.

I have thalasophobia. I've had it ever since I was about three. I was playing this Minecraft rip-off game, and I fell in the water, two blocks in. I couldn't break one of the blocks, obviously, as it was my first time ever playing. I went underwater, the bubbles started going down, I couldn't see anything. Suddenly, something attacks me. I'm underwater, it's night, and a zombie is attacking me. I'm so dead. I was just so scared in that moment, I went pale and almost lost consciousness. That's how it started. Couple years later, I'm around 7, and I decide, y'know, 'jump into the ocean!'. Yeah. Big mistake. Couldn't see anything. Drowned attacked me. Dead, once again. Unfortunately, I've always wanted to explore an Ocean Monument. But I can't. I'm too scared. Dammit, old-rip-off-game-I-can't-remember-the-name-of-right-now-because-it-was-so-long-ago!

Antidiseshstablishmeantarianism (idk how to spell it lol) basically is a word created to describe other words so lot's of people don't count it as a word in itself, but basically is refers to the Church of England back in Tudor times where some people didn't want the church to change from catholic to protestant.

idea: the core of the monument was the processor of a supercpmputer. the guardians are the guardianrobots. and the drowned worship(ed) sience / progress (matching to the newer video about the villagerorigins and the builder-civilication) and therfore one of its most sophisticated products: the supercomputer

Another thing to support your theory is a post about the Pufferfish on the Nintendo Switch News. This is a paragraph from there. Let's talk fish. Minecraft has many of them - from cod and salmon, to 3,584 different kinds of tropical fish *and Guardians (are they fish? They look like fish).* But one fish stands above them all in terms of size, danger, and ridiculous facial expressions: the Pufferfish. That entire paragraph is from the News on the Nintendo Switch. Whoever wrote that article even questioned if they are fish. According to the News thing, it says it's a post from Mojang, so it could be directly stating that they aren't actually a fish.

Basic problem with the Kaaba analogy: There exists *one* Kaaba. I'd say that this is quite important to the significance of the structure. Meanwhile, there exist countless Oceans Monuments. And it's not like Minecraft not having a concept of rarity. For example, there exist "only" 128 Strongholds, and Woodland Mansions are far rarer than Ocean Monuments. Edit: Note that the 128 is Java Edition. Bedrock seems to have infinite.
