    I know this video is pretty old at this point so it's unlikely anyone would see this comment, but this theory could also explain why, as the speaker says in help wanted, "it's true that some we're loosely based off real events". That's even more evidence to Oswald being the game developer who has made the games, he knows what truly happens at Freddy's, he knows the true events so it would make sense that he would be able to make things based on true events and killings and kidnappings and whatever that has happened at the pizzeria and in the Fazbear brand

    Nothing exactly to do with the lore, but there’s a chance that the Vindicators’ and Evokers’ separated eyebrows could’ve been a sign that they resent the Villagers, and remove from themselves what they can that relates the two together.

    DUDES, That's how Steve carries all those blocks!!!! Even if the Overworld is smaller than the actual in-game bounds of travel, the physical effect of gravity on the mass of say, a gold block, would be partially counteracted by the centrifugal phenomena, thereby making it easier to lift. The inertia of the block, however, would be a different story as Steve himself would have to be incredibly dense/strong in order not to be slowed down by moving the mass, unaffected by gravity, of all those blocks laterally. It is, in some ways, the opposite of John Carter of Mars. Corollary to that, assuming Steve and Alex are literally God-like creatures of nearly immeasurable power, and that the life forms of the overworld and the materials thereof are resilient enough to keep their shapes at the poles, then, of course, that explains the otherwise physically impossible feats of strength Steve and Alex are capable of. if they migrated from the poles to the habitable zone of the overworld, they would once again reflect earlier referenced, John Carter of Mars.

    There is also the fact that Lapis is used in Enchanting further cements the fact Lapis has "magical properties'. Another thing i thought of is that the zombies are not the only failed experiments but Steve is also a failed experiment along with Alex. I think essentially they are trying to resurrect a deity that has been alluded to in the lore. I like to think of it as Minecraft Adam and Eve 2.0; a failed science project by emo villagers to resurrect Herobrine.

    What if Illagers are the good guys? I've been working on this theory for a while, and I'm wondering what people think about it. First off, minecraft is evolving. I dont mean the gameplay or updates, I mean the people. They went from just having small villages that were practically useless to highly specialized villages, and humans (because illagers are still human) who are learning to use more complex technology and magic. And one thing that I think is overlooked in this game a lot is lightning. Minecraft lightning is certainly nothing like lightning in the real world, in fact, it seems to have almost magical qualities in many cases, being able to transform several mobs. Keep that in mind, it's important later. Eventually, these technologically and magically advanced humans began to quarrel with the ones more focused on tradition, and tensions built up. Then one day, the end realm was discovered, a place ruled by the ender dragon, who had the power to destroy all of them if it wished. A group of humans banded together to try and find a way to fight this powerful being, by creating the ultimate human. Steve. (Hear me out). They experimented with creating life, their prototypes resulting in snow golems and iron golems. Everything was progressing well when they made a mistake. It seemed like true life wasnt something easily tampered with, and their Steve experiments created the zombie, the most dreaded foe of the villagers. The villagers who valued tradition saw this as a reason to exile the advanced villagers, who became known as illagers. However, they did not give up. They knew that they couldn't harness the power to create this ultimate human, so they focused on something else instead. A beast with the strength of an iron golem and the utility of a horse. The ravager. Unfortunately, they still needed life for that, so they raised nearby villages to kidnap villagers and iron golems, and fuse them together into the closest thing they could create to a boss monster. The ravager experiments were successful, and they abandoned the steve experiments, leaving the materials where they stood. Maybe they finally stood a chance.Eventually, they were ready. Armed with magic, technology, and their ravages, they launched their attack, only to be utterly destroyed. The ender dragon created the wither. The wither tore the surface world to bits, clouding the sky with ash and twisting all life into hellish creatures. The wither, as you may remember, seems to have a lightning like shell around itself. The power of this lightning converted the world as we know it into a charred warped version of itself, which over the centuries became the nether. The illagers that made it to the endwere trapped there and eventuallybecame endermen, slaving away to construct ender cities for all eternity. Gradually the power of the lightning left very few creatures left, but the humans were fortunate enough to evolve. The ones with powerful enough magic to survive the blast became piglins. Piglins are very humanoid, with inventories, bartering, structures, and the fact that they only fight when attacked. The piglins tried to recover the remains of their civilization before the wither, butdidnt find much. Until centuries in the future, when the earth surrounding the Steve experiment withered away. The powerful lightning from the wither had been just what was needed to give Steve life, and he had been trapped there for a long time, unconscious. The piglins saw their opportunity to change fate, so they taught him everything they knew, including training him on using his inventory. Finally, when the time was right, they sent him back in time te try and change the way events turned out.
