    This is a possibly pointless detail, but when you look from the enderman's eyes in spectator mode, the colors are reversed. So end stone looks like cobblestone.

      @Rudy12345 mc that might have explained it well. And maybe, possibly, these Endermen thought us, players, are invading their home through staring even though we are in our world. I dunno tbh.

    I have a theory.
    (sorry if it sounds like rambling, it's late and I'm tired).

    only some of the builders went to the end. some went to the nether and some stayed in the overworld. The ones who stayed in the overworld defeated the wither with the iron golems. they evolved into villagers (there weren't villagers before). The ones who stayed in the nether slowly died off, and Steve is the last survivor of them. He doesn't remember this because he has amnesia.

    Proof that some people wen to the Nether:

    You can tell that Steve has amnesia because he can still remember a few things but not much. He can remember how to interact with villagers, craft stuff, and build the nether portal. You can also tell he's from the nether because he is REALLY strong. (just imagine your inventory full of 64 stacks of cobblestone. that's how how strong he is). He can even kill the Enderdragon. Clearly, the humans who went to the nether evolved to be stronger to survive the harsh conditions there. However, it wasn't enough. They slowly died off until only Steve was left. I don't really know how Steve ended up with amnesia though. Maybe a ghast was chasing him through the nether, he ran into a portal, and the ghast shot a fireball at the portal. The portal could've broken at the same time that Steve entered it, which could've messed with his brain and caused the amnesia. This would also explain why there is no nether portal when you first spawn in a world.

    Proof that some stayed behind and became villagers:
    Other than desert wells, desert temples, jungle temples, and igloos there are not land structures remaining from the builders. It's odd that no cities, towns, or at least houses were left over from the wither when these there structures were still there. If the villagers evolved from builders, then their villages would have originally been builder houses, which makes sense. Also, the builders could have rebuilt stuff destroyed by the wither before evolving into villagers (because villagers can't build).

    The reason that villagers no longer build, don't leave their villages (mostly), and look different is this: they are scared are new things, especially science, magic, and building. They are scared of new things because they are what caused the wither to be created and almost destroy the world. Because of this, they decided to stay in their villages and never create anything new. The only exception is wandering traders, who are considered really brave by the villagers. This is why they can't build, because they were too scared to make something dangerous. This is also why they have longer heads and noses. These things help them to sense and avoid danger. Their noses help them smell monsters. The heads help because if they see someone from far away they can tell whether they are a zombie or not by whether their head is rotten. Taller heads stick out more, so they are easier to see. They avoid all monsters, even though only zombies attack them because they are more paranoid than before because of the wither. The other monsters don't attack because villagers don't attack them. The monsters attack Steve because builders in the past would attack monsters, probably for the loot.

    The villagers also shun those who create new magic. This is why witches and illagers are separate from the villages.
    This is also why the loot in blacksmith chests and some of the stuff in trades is useless to villagers (such as horse armor and weapons, because villagers don't use these). They still have these things because they can sell them to others, like builders if they come back from the nether or the end.

          They hate water is mabey because the don’t remember it and they are scared of it because you can’t spawn water at the nether and some Ender man live in there and when we don’t come to the end they don’t know about water

          But I don’t know if it’s true because it’s just a THEORY

                            Ok but one thing: If the came UNPREPARED and there is no escape from end, how the end cities have such amazing items? I bet that they could kill dragon with that...

                                  I have this ideo of the ender pearls are actually not from ender.The generation before the player made theese things and carried them to teleport but when tehy were stuck at the end some peapole ran out so that might be the reason its a rare drop.But this is a theory as well.

                                    One piece of evidence that throws me for a loop is that to get an eye of ender you need and ender pearl
                                    And you need eyes of Enders to not only find but open the portal so if those people really are humans were did they get ender pearls and before you say anything if I’m correct only *endermen* drop ender pearls so how did they obtain ender pearls to begin with?

                                            So here's my add on.

                                            The builders created the ender dragon to defend the spawn point in the event the wither managed to get through.

                                            The clue is that you can respawn the ender dragon by creating end crystals.
                                            My "theory" is that the builders made several withers because they were convinced they had the reanimation thing licked.
                                            They managed to kill some of them and collected the crystals for later study (ie: this thing might help us defeat these withers")
                                            The withers overran the surface world (where did they go?)
                                            The builders escaped to the end with all their stuff, including the crystals.
                                            On the end island, food supplies were running out. The builders, in desperation, built out into the void, seeking to find ANYTHING.
                                            Sure enough, success, they discovered the end islands with FOOD.

                                            Meanwhile , in the overworld, a wither was able to dig down and attack a strong hold. It got through to the end and after a huge battle the builders managed to defeat it. (one more crystal)

                                            To keep this from ever happening again, using their new skills of alchemy and necromancy and their supply of wither stars they figured out how to spawn the first ender dragon.

                                            They retreated to the outer islands, destroying their bridges as they went, leaving the dragon behind to protect the spawn point.

                                            The thing is, the dragon is programed to attack ANYTHING that spawns into the end after being spawned itself. That's why it attacks you when you arrive but why it DOESN'T ATTACK ENDERMEN.

                                            The fact that a return portal opens up after the dragon dies is a mechanic that the builders did not know would happen. ( Like Viagra was made for heart conditions and accidently gave guys woodys)

                                            Associated theories: The builders made the ender pearls in the overworld. The fact that you can't craft them simply means it is a lost art like Damascus steel. You can find them in chests and can trade for them with villagers. Clearly they exist as artifacts in the overworld. Rare perhaps but findable. Then, as said in the video, they combined tech with alchemy to create the "eyes", bio mechanical keys that wood help them get the hell out of dodge.

                                            They used them as they function: As teleporting devices. The fact that the end fruit teleports you as well could just be a coincidence. Or could be a clue placed by the gang at Mojang to say that you too are an enderman.

                                            But if you think of the ender pearls as mechanical devices it kinda makes sense that the endermen keep them in their pockets.

                                            Anyway. just a theory.

                                              Aren't endermen are poisoned humans from a nether liquid or some kind of poison and are people that never came from The End and got killed from the Ender dragon which had the poison to be taken over and does what the Ender Dragon says, like the toads that has been taken over by the virus. But who knows I some stupid sixth grader.

                                                                                  • Silver Sweet Studios

                                                                                    So phantoms look like bats, and with disc 11 and 13 we know he's/she's in a cave :P
                                                                                    And what lives in caves..? BATS! So maybe YOU are the person recording the stuff in the 'diary' with the Game Theroy disk 11 and 13 stuff (referring to it). And maybe they're haunting their dreams. And with the insomnia you halucinate but when they attack you its not real..? And you die of 'fake shock'. Like in the movie Nightmare On Elm Street..?

Those must be two enderman talking with their thoughts, the only way how they can communicate. They tell us about how life was in the past, and how thankful they are for you killing the ender dragon. They watched and battled you because they wanted to see how strong you have become. The enderman wanted you to defeat the ender dragon. They wanted you to become strong so if you become trapped, you could fight the ender dragon. They wanted you to help them escap e. You and the ende rman were connected after you killed the ender dragon, so you could read their thoughts.

                                                                                        • Midmorning_Mijiko
