    The world of Minecraft is vast and pretty well explored... except for one place. You see, we've covered a LOT of Minecraft on this channel, and in doing research for all of that I've noticed that one place remains mostly undiscovered - or at least un-theorized! The underwater biome of Minecraft is FULL of weird creatures and tons of interesting lore, if you know where to look. Spoiler alert, I do! Today we are diving into old Gods, ancient ruins, and more! Get your scuba gear ready, Theorists!

      Ok so Maybe as Minecraft gets more updates and more crafting recipes the player is getting more experienced and learning how to build them cause as you said there was an ancient civilisation that was advanced and so basically they had an extremely updated version of minecraft with robots and lasers and stuff
