    This will get lost in the comments but a number I have noticed more and more since I've started thinking about is 479 idk why but it's a number I've seen a lot nothing great about it just the fact I've seen it pop up a lot

      9:20 since Piglins love gold, I think it would be cool of they were hiding it from them in those monuments instead

            I was just sitting here thinking "huh, I don't have 23 all that much in my life," and then I remembered.... Every year, I must acknowledge mortality ever creeping toward me... on July the 23rd... WELP

                  In a more simplified explanation, basically, guardians are mechanical beasts made to protect/guard an "ancient" building which holds a sacred treasure.

                    What if it was built by the ancient builder race like you discussed before but as they were retreating some of the people refused to leave the holy site and drown

                          I really would like to see MatPat find out the origins of the totem of undying, it's really a mystery on what's behind it?

                                        The drowned actually are zombies that drowned in the ocean. You can create drowned by pushing a zombie into water deep enough to drown it.

                                                  I doubt my comment on the previous two part video had anything to do with it, but I wan't to be consistent in my criticisms/feedback
                                                  I really enjoyed this video and its pacing. the two parter was disclaimed early on. It felt like this video was mostly about the theory this time, and i really liked that. Also the end of the video gave me answers to questions i had at the beginning but by the end, Matpat brought up new questions i'm looking forward to seeing in the next part. I really apreciated that. It was more satisfying than most of the other two parters i've watched on the channel so far. Another example of, what i think, is a good and satisfying two part-er: Rosalina's origin and Peach is dead episodes were really well done. Also thanks to Team Theorist for all of your hard work beyond the videos in things like advocating for the gaming community and fighting cancer. you guys are awesome,
