    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!

    Hey mat just wondering if you would like to look into this. So the person that made petscop made another game called sheriff domestic. The game looks very weird so if you would like to look into this just look up sheriff domestic thanks.

    so disc 11 has a creeper face in the spectrogram also cave ambient sound 14 has a creeper face in the spectrogram this means they both have something in common lets see disc 11 is played in a cave, cave ambient sound 14 is played in a cave too but 14 is after 13 disc 13 is played in a cave the thing is cave ambient sound 14 sounds...broken almost sounds like a broken recording wait a minute what if the numbers go in order in disc 11 there is a creeper explosion but the recording still works so the creator maybe thought "maybe I will make a recording of cave sounds" so he tried and then there is another explosion now it got really broken the creator thought "well maybe it still works" he tried and it didn't work or it could be that he knew it broke but maybe herobrine chased him so he tried recording but it sounded disturbing
