I just want to add: The reason there are so many Creepers is that TNT is made out of Gunpower and sand Where is the best place to find boatloads of sand? Deserts. Could be something there but I just thought it was neat
Lickow3 2 ditë më parë
Creepers probably know that they are expoading so they dont want to get near the cat and i think because tnt is connected to their hearts they are exploading when they get a excited like they propably never seen a man after people disapierd in end so they are excited to see a man and they are excited to see a cat cuz they like them so that could posibly mean that totem of undying in contact with people makes crepers or some kind of it because they are acting same as aciant people

I have a wacky theory about there being multiple clans of builders. I look at it this way: The builders made Creepers. Why are they attacking Steve, a possible descendant of the creators? Here’s what I came up with: Two clans were in bad terms. One clan made the Creepers to be used as soldiers to fight for the desert clan.

Also on the topic of the ancient Egyptians the string very well could be like bandages on mummies, since Minecraft doesn’t have bandages, they take wool and turn it to string to help mummify the bodies. Just a mini theory 🙃

The creeper may get it’s energy from the sun as it’s green color could absorb solar rays and power it.

I think I'll stick to the Pete Moss Creeper theory, specifically because the temples could simply be honoring the naturally occuring presence of Creepers and how they galvanized resource collection for them. The Chiseled blocks don't only house man-made carvings, after all. They house Skeletons in the case of Chiseled Netherbrick, something that is common in the Nether and a result of the souls persisting there, and the Chiseled Deep Slate which seems to show a Builder. The others of course are artificial creations such as the Warden and Whither Boss, however keeping those in living memory through decoration would be important to them, either to remind and warn others they exist or to honor them. Creepers providing TNT and an easier method of mining out the earth being honored in the same way humans honor animas who they've come to rely on feels much stronger than a joke entry in a decently written Mobestiary.
ClayXros 5 ditë më parë
In anticipated response to the cat portion of the video, I've got a simple response. The Creepers are biologically programmed to avoid cats because they kill other animals, giving more corpses for Creeper spores to grow from. So they steer clear when a cat is around. Kind of a biological peace treaty that does sometimes exist in nature.

Wait mat pat if the illagers were (theoretically) descendants of this ancient minecraft egyptian race, and the illagers are villagers that were outcasts, then does that mean that villagers are all together descendants of the ancient race of builders or the egyptian? (Im confused, also by my own question)

Maybe the Illagers know the origin of the creeper and how they were created, and now the Illagers are trying to do the same thing but with steve. Although they are falling and making zombies. Maybe the Illagers respect the ancient builders that created the creeper so much that they also have a respect for cats. Explaining the cat staues. Maybe they also pay their respects to the ancient builders that made the creeper in emeralds. That would explain why they can drop an emerald. Maybe they take emeralds from the villagers that kicked them out in the first place. They could collect them by raids on villages and by vexes. Maybe that's why the vexes can go through walls. Idk it's just a theory, my theory!

Because there was several factions of humanity,some living in the desert,in the ocean,some in the jungle. I’m not sure if you have done this but maybe it’s why there is different technologies,desert temples having TNT and jungle temples having hidden poison arrows and the guardians that the ocean dwellers created to protect them and their temples but there is a problem with that,why would the guardians attack Steve when he comes near.My theory is that the ocean dwellers escaped into the end with the other civilizations,leaving the guardians alone in the ocean explaining why they attack Steve when he come near them.because his ancestors left them. This ends my Ted talk
