    Now that I have started to dive into the deep lore of Minecraft, I think I will be able to map out the ENTIRE in-world history of the game. We've talked about the corrupted music discs and the origin of the Enderme. Today I want to solve the mystery of what started EVERYTHING. What created Minecraft? Well there is this thing called the Wither...

Endermites are the pets of endermen that went feral and evolved so they could teleport and they teleport when endermen teleport because endermen open a gate and endermites go through that portal

Here are some things I want to touch up on. Why is the Wither so strong? Because those that have fallen into the sand and became Wither Skeletons were the upmost strongest warriors. Another factor here is that the average soul sand has many souls in it. Combine that with *4* and *3* heads of the strong, fallen warriors and you get something with immense strength. I also wanted to talk about the certain blocks they didn't destroy. The End block, The End frame, Bedrock and Command Blocks. The End Frame: As I touched up on before, they were the fallen warriors. Just because they have been decayed does not mean they have lost their memories. They may be able to remember the plans of fleeing to what we called, "T҉h҉e҉ ҉E҉n҉d҉," so they didn't want to destroy the very thing that might help their kind. End Portal Block: As I stated before, just because they are decayed doesn't mean they have lost memory. During their rampage, I am most likely sure they were curious about the Enderman. I believe they looked into this, and while they didn't understand fully, the warriors realized that their race has left them behind, but when they try calling for help, nobody came... They do not want to be turned into some sort of End Wither, so I believe that the Wither might be scared of this. Command Block: As you have stated, the Ancient race was advanced. Not just advanced, but they created uncraftable items we now know as barrier blocks, command blocks, end portal frames, etc. The Wither realizes the technological block known as the Command Block. For some reason, they believe that maybe somewhere, someday, somebody will come and could hopefully use the Command Block to reform them into their old selves. Bedrock: You are wasting your time here. Bedrock is *UNBREAKABLE.*

I have another piece of proof that soul sand has souls in them, if you break them and listen very carefully you can hear a ghostly gasp (I don’t know if they just added it or not but it’s there)

Quick question just popped up, not trying to poke holes in the theory but I do want to clear one thing up If this were true that the original builders were trying to escape the Wither by digging the strongholds and such, what ever happened to that specific Wither? Did it die? Did it fly into space? Did it somehow find it's way into the End and got killed by the Dragon? Since it can be spawned whenever and doesn't go away until the player kills it, that makes me think it didn't die of age (nothing in Minecraft does anyway) and I can't help but wonder if the Wither is actually still out there, I know that there can be multiple Withers at once so it's not impossible, but since the player has to spawn one in to trigger the boss fight rather than find one, we know what happens to the spawned in one, but the original one remains M.I.A. so I can't help but wonder where it is

Doesn't the wither attack the ender dragon? Maybe the "ancient builders" spawned the dragon, just like you can do using ender crystals. This would be very dark, because that would mean they sacrificed themselves (as endermen) to protect their people.

Game devs: "oh, this mob only spawns when an ender pearl is used, something that is inside of an enderman? Endermen must be mad at it because it was basically inside one of theirs." matpat: "ANICENT BUILDERS VS SILVERFISH!"

People seem to be extremely against MCSM in the comments, so here’s my theory on how it all fits together: All this stuff is the past, the game we play is the present, and MCSM is the future, when people are thriving again. MCSM isn’t that bad imo, I actually loved it.

Wow I think it’s called the beginning because that how it started and the end because that’s were they died Good theory I have a theory (I haven’t seen the full video):the wither is an over powered experiment by illigers (they might be evil villager scientists) so they decide to throw it in the nether and brake the portal then went back to their experience After a while the wither vanished and nobody new about him but little did those illigers know he could be made again Three wither skeletons died on top of 4 soulsand perfectly placed in the wither shape The one of the ancient builders built a nether portal and found the heads . He thought it looked funny if he put the skulls on the soulsand and the wither re spawned so the builder ran through the portal and broke it many years later he forgot all about it and only remember the nether portal and told the everyone.
