  • I didnt know how to react to this when I saw first saw it. It took me a few minutes to realize how much mental health and disabillties matter so much. Matpat made this more clear to me.

  • I have a little theory. What if the player isn't the same as he builders? It would explain why the player is immune to the zombies (unlike the villagers or the builders). Or maybe when the builders were leaving, the player was accidentally left behind and adapted in order to survive. Or my favored route, the player was created by the builders. In one of Matpat's other Minecraft theories, he stated the builders tried to ressurect their dead in the nether. Meaning they were open to tinkering with lifeforms too. At some point, they managed to create the player, and probably started the zombie situation. If the player was created as a way to raise the dead or cheat death, then they succeeded. Also there is the fact the builders would need to raise their dead. Whenever the player dies, they repawn. Worth noting that time continues after the player's death. True this is a game mechanic for multi-player, but who says that can't be worked into lore. The player is the only thing that cheats death and stays in the same state of mind, unlike the zombies. In a way, the player is a super human. Hence why they can punch down trees so fast with little effort. This also answers my questions as to why wither deletions and guardians would attack the player. The player must have been changed so much those two mobs must have not recognized the player as a builder or descendent of the builders. Though the player must look pretty similar to the builders and acts a tad like them. But the player must not be able to gain the intelligence the builders had to be make the end portal blocks. Or since the end portal came after the nether the player must have only gained the knowledge the builders themselves had before they made the end portal but knew enough to make an enchanted table. In a way, the enderman and the player are what's left of the builder race.
