                  I feel like the ocean monuments could be part of the Minecraft lore series and somehow connected to the gold swords in the nether that were supposedly left by the ancient people. Maybe gold is something more than just butter.

                                  here's a possible theory: why are zombies structure more like the player's structure? are they the lost civilization?

                                                      The funny thing is that this theory is really good but the creator of mc (Notch) made this sea temple update before he handed it over to Microsoft. Notch is openly atheist..

After the video was made, it was shown as a bug and was fixed. However, thermal imagers watch your infrared image (thermal radiation), which is similar from an outsiders perspective to something you see. Some animals can see your thermal signature, so I think this point is quite weak.
