If one wants to come to understand some of this stuff, you have to be willing to get very much down and dirty.. to face things that are unthinkable.. and that's on day 1 of the journey.
You are right about the definitions on souls and tulpas (and sparks) being rather mushy, in the best of cases
I'ts an ugly subject. People don't want to confront that 'souls' are no different than any other tulpa,
and that in the big picture, everything is temporary and cyclic.
Now I've run into some really ugly 'tulpa/souls' that 'don't want to die.. so they prowl around certain vulnerable people and try to take them over. Of course there is 'some' actual reincarnation after a fashion. And you are correct.. tulpas tend to go to the mass-delusion egregores after death... and unless that faith goes extinct, that egregore will survive for a long time.
