Now that I have started to dive into the deep lore of Minecraft, I think I will be able to map out the ENTIRE in-world history of the game. We've talked about the corrupted music discs and the origin of the Enderme. Today I want to solve the mystery of what started EVERYTHING. What created Minecraft? Well there is this thing called the Wither...

    May I add something? I was thinking about how they could have made the connection between soul sand and wither skeletons, how they thought that they could bring their dead friends back, when I realized that may not have been the first time they did it. Say one of them got attacked by a zombie and wasn't killed but became a thing like them. They started learning about magic and eventually realized they could bring those turned back to humans. So then they started wondering if the same could be done for skeletons and wither skeletons

    I Think the Endermite is a parasite. Just look at what they spawn from, enderpearls. That's why I think Enderpearls are Endermite eggs. It just makes sense.

    Deep underground... past the bedrock... but don't dig down... you'll regret that... But anyway, how do you explain testificates? Are they a backwards evolved form of the ancient race of builders?

    This works really well, except for one thing... If The Wither was decimating everyone everywhere by the thousands (or perhaps millions), why doesn't he appear in the Overworld? Better yet, why do we have to summon him? Surely if it existed already we wouldn't need to do that, otherwise there would be two Withers.
