    This is a possibly pointless detail, but when you look from the enderman's eyes in spectator mode, the colors are reversed. So end stone looks like cobblestone.

      @Rudy12345 mc that might have explained it well. And maybe, possibly, these Endermen thought us, players, are invading their home through staring even though we are in our world. I dunno tbh.

                I honestly had no idea the Endermen were speaking. That's just one of those little details that flies under most people's radars. I think it's neat.

                  GUYS, A NEW DETAIL IN 1.15 IS THAT PARROTS CAN'T REPLICATE ENDERMEN SOUNDS! I think that some how confirms the theory. Because parrots don't replicate Steve as well

                          the endermen are probably telling you to go to the end, and save them from the ender dragon.

                            So if they ate chorus fruit and turned into this, could they eat apples and meat to turn back into humans?

                                I always thought the zombies were past Steve lives where you died by a zombie and more are continual different lives where Steve has died

                                    I’m certain Villagers are still human. Just a different ethnicity in the game or something. Maybe they’re the local people, and the Builders were just an ancient culture.

                                        How come if enderman attack you but they used to be humans why do they attack you if you were one of there kind long ago

                                          Possible theory: where did the eyes of ender go after the builders went in the portal???

                                            I’m mainly wondering if why water hurts them. My guess is that since they live in The End, where water doesn’t cannot exist, over time they’ve changed to where they are practically allergic to the stuff and shrivel away.

                                                I'm late and I am sorry but this is more of a hypothesis but I'm wondering what you guys think: Could Steve be a reincarnation of one of the "prehistoric races"? Especially since the nightmares that we see when we go a long time without sleeping looks rather similar to the ender dragon. Could it be that Steve was a descendent of one of those prehistoric builders and could have gotten left behind in the fleeing from everything that was done? What do all of you think??

                                                  When I was a child, I thought the ender was an infection, the mites being the ones that infect, endermen being soldiers, and the dragon being the main give mind who is spreading it all.

                                                  But then how is the dragon's head on the end city ship if the ancient civilization never defeated the dragon?

                                                            I always thought of the enderman as a cousin species to humans like Neanderthals, maybe the humans were slaves under them, slaves rose up and made a gate that was 1 way and wile the humans had to fight them off and zombie plagues ect and failed in the end

They don’t pick up chests or items, but did when first making the cities, out of memories from their previous lives. Now they’ve lost those memories, and do things randomly
