    Another interesting thing is that the buildings you failed to mention (Jungle temples and woodland mansions) are deep within over grown areas, implying that they are areas untouched by the wither

      Well, with that theory, you could explain why you have "Husks", '"Drowned" and "Zombies".
      The Wither have the power to make people rot, doesn't h? Some went to deserts and built pyramids, but couldn't protect themselves, as a result: Husks.
      Some went to the seas ant built the Water Temples but found the same fate, the result: Drowneds. And those who did not hide became zombies.
      Probably someone must have already posted something like this here on the coments.

        Yea there’s a one hole In your theory what about the eye of enders and enderpearls, eye of Enders are made of enderpearls but where do the enderpearls come from if there wasn’t any endermen just the builders I mean if they were the first enderman and the last builders wouldn’t get them still because they wouldn’t kill their own kind would they? So how would they get back to stronghold if you need food I mean matpat did say it was really deep underground so I think eyes of enders AND enderpearls can be made and endermen drop them because they think using them will get them back but the ones on the surface are just from chorus fruit brought back from the end then they ate it then they turned in to endermen then discovered the teleportation power then teleported to the surface in hopes of seeing their creations on last time, the ones in the end are trapped because of the wither and the ones in the end keep holding them in hopes of going back but can’t. That is my theory

                  Hey, can we perhaps get a theory on villagers and pillagers? They can't build, they can't craft, YET, there are villages and pillaged outposts scattered all over the world, unaffected by the wither.
                  OH! Maybe the Pillagers actually helped in creating the Wither? And when it found villages and pillaged outposts, it didn't attack because they resembled it's creators?

                                  Theory:So before the builders went to the nether and the end there was buildings then they went to nether there friends died then they made the wither and the building got destroyed then the builders went to the strongholds and the end and became the enderman the withe died and you and Alex and Steve are the remainings and you need to follow there journey

                                    If we’re talking about Man’s Hubris then maybe, just maybe, the ancient builders KNEW they couldn’t return home. They felt powerful. They felt capable. And it was their pride that ushered in the destruction of their future.

                                      I have a fortnite theory "Fortnite doesn't know what it's gonna do cause if you add 11 146 15 62 87 14 106 150 which came up on the blackhole screen after the event together in a calculator turn the awrnser into binary and also turn the words fortnite into a binary transformer sepretley add the two things together that arnswer will be in binary turn that binary into words it ends up being a question mark proving fortnite doesn't know what there doing."

                                                  Theory: Steve and Alex are survivors/distant relatives of the Ancient Builders. They wake up at the spawn point, and find or build shelter to survive the first night. Then, they build progressively better structures and learn how to master the environment e.g. taming wolves and ocelots, trading with villagers etc. And then finally go to defeat the Nether and the End -to avenge the death of their race/ancestors.

                                                  Sounds like the plot of an adventure, don't you think?

                                                    After the Wither laid waste to all that the builders had made, it rested. The Wither became the force that causes mobs to spawn every night, and bother the player.

                                                    An evil force of nature.

                                                              1. You say how the only thing left is the underground fortresses and deserted temples. What about villages? (Did the villagers come later? If so where did they come from? If not how weren’t they killed by the Wither?)

                                                              2. Where did it go? Did it just die? Did it leave the world? Where that Wither at?

                                                                I have a theory as to why the Wither is hostile to the world itself. Since it is made of multiple units of soul sand, there would be multiple souls in it, yet it is only a single sentient lifeform. These multiple souls may be arguing about who gets to control the body, likely unaware of what the body does as a result, and/or the multiple souls cause the body the lose its sanity, and none of them can control it. This also explains the period of time where it just stays still.

I'm sure ancient builders would be able to easily obtain diamonds especially if they work as a society. I think what actually happeneded was the wither was used as a war weapon. If this was true then hundreds of withers could have been spawned and as a failiure. Like nuclear bombs being fired at test sites. I'm sure there should have been like different groups of ancient builders since maybe some of them are still in th overworld (mobs) or the nether. Hundreds of withers are much harder to take down.

Hear me out Minecraft used to have the dream land or sky land and they change it to the end why because the sky land was been taken over by the ender dragon and the ender dragon soo they become slaves till they turn to ender man

                                                                            Sorry I forget something remember the pigmen that used to be in Minecraft well they are the zombie pigmen the zombie pigmen is the people that lived in the sky land and so they go to the nether the they lived there till turned into a zombie pigmen. So they attack you because you hit them but also they still remember the past when they're been killed and eaten so they go to the sky land so they turned to a human shape form (and that my friend is a theory A GAME THEORY)

The reason is they worshipped it and did not try to leave! Until they ran out of food so the chorus fruit they eat the teleport they have.and they get injured so they use the chorus fruit to help them but there was a cost.there normal life.made to do what the ender man says.killing the last of us.the players multi or not.and the mini games are before the tragic loss of people.the end :) plz like so game theory can see

You see this structure. Not a generated structure, no no no, but in stead a structure that you see in your other save file (or a “world”) the theory that I’m talking about is. Are all the “worlds” connected to each other. (Fun Fact) this actually happened on one of my worlds and I built a statue where I spawned.
