    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.

      If colors are inverted water looks like lava, but does it feel like it?

    origin of the guardians, sea temples, and why the elder guardian has some level of telepathy?
    why is there such an abundance of undead creatures?

          and another proof of this theory of freeing the end is that AFTER i killed the dragon endermen were much more frequent in the overworld. This might just be console edition though

                  Then why the endermen feel pain when they touch the water?!

                        Maybe the ender men get uncomfortable when you look in their eyes. That’s probably why they attack you

                            A bit late to this but maybe the endermen don't like it when you look them in the eye because they learned over time that it means something is threatening them

                              What about when you defeat the dragon, return through the portal that has spawned, but before you return, this text appears and there is a conversation that you can read on the screen? I’m curious about what that means.

                                  They are so advanced they cant make high tech weapon instead they all jump into a portal at once. Like come one this has way to many holes in it. A better question is who is steve and where does he come from

                                            I feel like you over looked the fact that even tho the enderman are trapped in the end, some of them just "teleported" to the overwold, it really doesn't make sense. Why didn't the people when they released they could teleport but where still in the middle of the process of changing to enderman teleport out of the end, theres a lot more questions this brings up, but the fact that some of them just "teleported" out of there makes no sense

                                            Yeah but how come enderman are trying to tell you something even though they still attack if you look at them

                                              Has anyone cracked the meaning of the end credits? It seems like a super weird thing to put at the end of the game. The biggest theory I’m seeing is that the End is a dreamworld or that the End was a dream in and off itself(hence why you spawn back at your bed when you leave)

                                                  Can’t we talk about how after you beat The Ender Dragon now you get no credits just a conversation talking about how you can understand a species you couldn’t understand before?

                                                    I thought the endermen where prisoners that where forced down through the portal and than the rest of the things happened

I can think of two evolutionary reasons an animal might explode: to defend something, or to reproduce (maybe by spreading spores onto your dead body). But given that creepers target players specifically, what if they were made by the world's former inhabitants (now Endermen)?
