    Here's a little theory for thought for you, what if (and im just spit balling here) what if the Creeper is another of the ancient builders and this this is there sarcophagus, a live sarcophagus. Afterall the creeper hyrogliphs are right next to the ankh's of the desert temple. This would explain Mat's theory about creepers staying away from cats.

    Wait... Do you know how the eyes of ender is how you go to the end? Well, what if those eyes could allow the wardens to travel through dimensions and you had to fight them to get the eyes? Maybe they are called the wardens because the difficulty of finding and killing things that are bigger beef cakes than the golem while they are protecting the stronghold at the same time while being able to retreat by teleporting? So I think that the warden could be much stronger with there eyes because they have "theoretically adapted" to use the soul sand to make plants as echolocation sources... What makes them supposedly stronger with there eyes is that they are smart enough to remember a task they were given eons ago and adapt to fulfill it smartly and slickly. So I combat the wardens would take every body on like Thanos did in infinity war. However this theory is a bit of a stretch so it could be half taken literally....

    I swear, every video game theory puts out on minecraft lore makes it sound like herobrine actually belongs in minecraft, a single builder managed to find the key to infinate life, but at a cost.

    With this kind of idea in mind, it does in turn make some sense with how Creepers are one of the only hostile mobs that iron golems don't attack, with them having the same creators; although, surprised you didn't mention that.

    I think the illagers are copying the builders because in the real world many civilizations copied Egypt, I know someone in the renaissance made a glass pyramid. Some places took artifacts from Egypt.

    Here's a long theory about fossils, Illagers, and the nether. Ok so a long time ago, There was some monsters. (The origins of the fossils we see in deserts and swamps.) These monsters population was pretty low, but for some odd reason their population exploded a few times, and escaped from just the underground. They terrorized just about everything including the humans at the time. This was around the time people first opened the nether portal. As these monsters destroyed everything in their path, they attacked the massive protections put around the first nether portals and there was a mass break-in. (Slimes, Endermen? And these monsters) People new that they wouldn't want to follow them, and waited for the population of them in the Overworld to lower. Once people did go in with their Netherite armor, they were all wrecked, and the debris of their armor was scattered. (Ancient debris.) People locked down the gates to the nether, unbeknownst to them... In the nether, a volcano was growing. It blew sky high, and shaped the nether we see today. These monsters couldn't stand the heat, and died out. (By the way, the skeletons in the soul sand valley are those soldiers we talked about earlier) In the Overworld, the Illagers, instead of making Ravagers from Villagers... Made them from iron golems. The witch went to swamps because some of those fossils still exist. I also believe that Ravagers may be a combination of the iron golems and the old monsters I talked about. This is still pretty oversimplified. And I will edit this in the future i'm just happy this is written out.
