    The beginning reminded me of how awesome the D&D Underdark would be in Minecraft. Also, there are literally oceans of evidence (in the form of lava in the Nether) that imply there is enough geothermal energy to keep all that lava really hot. And it's possible that the geothermal power is what keeps the Netherblocks (Syblocks but in the Nether) floating. In addition, my friend and I came up with the "terraforming" idea a while ago with an important supplement being new species of fungus based on the sculk stuff... Not just that but many quartz colorations (green, pink, yellow) are caused by iron impurities. With nether quartz appearing to be slightly pink when in nether quartz ore, it's safe to say that there are at least trace amounts of iron wherever you find nether quartz. Also, you find skeletons and fossils in the soul sand valleys... who's to say the area isn't made of fossilized fungi and decaying animal meat from an ancient era? That would make it quite healthy, and maybe the ancient fungus had caps resembling wailing faces. That would scare some creatures away! And MATPAT YOU FORGOT TO SAY "BUT THAT'S JUST A THEORY"

    I believe that the wither we spawn the game is an infant. I think this because of the fossils in the neither can be arranged and look similar to that of the wither but larger. The fossils seem to mostly spawn in soul valleys where the air around you has the blue tint of soul energy and i believe that the souls that the witherzilla took seeped into the netherrack and blackstone forming the soul valleys

    idk about the idea of souls as the energy of the nether, I rather I think because it is hell like dimension, there is some sort of dark energy that affects the ecosystem, and laws in our world wont affect the nether.

    Theory idea: What was the timeline of, well... all of this (in all of this I mean when did they create the wither? when did they exile the illagers out of the vilages? when did the "masters" become endermen? when did pigs become piglins? And also Im not talkin about like "they create the wither in 1974" or "they traveled into the nether 2 days after the exilation of the illagers" I mean "first they buildt the temples, then the zombie got created, then... you know what Im talking about)

    Everyone’s saying “Geothermal power!”, and I thought that too at first, but now I realize why it wouldn’t work. Geothermal energy specifically works by moving heat from a hot area to a colder one, so it wouldn’t work in the Nether. Also, lifeforms can’t harvest heat energy to live. The only reason hydrothermal vents at the ocean’s bottom sustain life is because they spray out tons of chemicals that are used as fuel for chemical reactions. The actual heat of the water does not provide the energy for organisms.

    Hey. Gold isn’t too rare in the Nether, and the only way to get strong there is from striders, which live out on the lava. A place that’s not safe for piglins, so string is probably pretty valuable to them.

    In my opinion both the bedrock & the netherrack must contain to energy that is received by a star. In conclusion nether materials can collect energy. That is how I presume fungi that aren't from the overworld get their energy, their mycelium grows into the netherrack that has lots of energy channeling through it.
