    I watched a video by NintendoBlackCrisis (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJwllSGUWvY) about malice and came up with this theory. Not sure if its good or not but whatever. You may need to watch the video for context.

    Ganon never reincarnated and stayed dead. Malice found either his remains or spirit and used his hatred to fuel him and bring him to "life". The malice grew stronger over those 10,000 years until it thought it was ready to release itself. While releasing itself, it spread (like a disease) to all able hosts, such as Guardians and spirits until it had taken over all of Hyrule.

    Just a thought -Why would malice create the eyes if it is indestructible without them? Most malice 'pools' don't have these weak spots so maybe the are hidden from sight beneath the malice? Maybe the eyes are it's true physical form? Who knows...

    Also - We're the monsters already in Hyrule or did the malice create them, and if so, how can they drop bones and organs and such when they were created by pure disease? Guess we'll never know...

    At some point in the game, Zelda says that he is blind from rage or something so that kinda makes this more understandable.

    I wanted to pick both, since they both can apply.

    Malice is pure evil and disease, it is Ganon's creation, to fuel all that is wicked.

    I think it is a sort of cast off ectoplasm, that used to be a part of him. It often 'instinctively' tries to coalesce into some sort of physical body, because it might be vulnerable in it's 'essence' form. However without a mind to direct it, the most it can do is form eyes (the 'heart' and most vulnerable part of a demonic beast) spines and mouths, and writhe about as a mindless ooze.

    Using this theory, it might be possible that if there was a mentally strong enough person that could physically withstand the corruption it might bring onto them, they could be that 'mind' and make it form whatever they wanted. Whether or not it eventually turns them into something like Ganon if they are immersed in it too long, or it slowly drains their life, that would be even more speculation, but it is interesting to think of someone trying to take control of it.

    It's residue of the dark deeds of hyrule namely Ganons it's all apart of him, he became a force of destruction of entropy and that is what is happening to hyrule it's succumbing to entropy. All the monsters are born from malice and when die return to it so that they will resurrect upon the next blood moon.

    Think of it as Ganons Ghost got super edgy and start birthing monsters left right n center and the physical pools of malice we see is the afterbirth, the more monsters produced the more malice, hyrule castle is coated in it due to guardian repository being there plus the lynels.
