Those types of people may very well create subconscious "entities" that act to their own detriment, and possibly even those who are around them,
without knowing it, however.
This is how the Kahunas of Hawaii teach consciousness. They divide human consciousness into 3 parts.
There is the conscious/logical thinking, the subconscious, and the super-consciousness which is over-arching over both the conscious and
The subconscious is the relevant part here. Even modern sciences like NLP recognize that people do things without even thinking about it --
automatically. These are patterns pretty much hard-wired into our brains, which is why they come automatically, through behavioral repetition. The
Kahunas say this part of our mind has the intelligence of a child about 2 to 6 years old generally, and remember that it can
act of its own
accord and without our rational, directed consciousness. This is what we do when we stumble around in dreams without being aware that we are
dreaming, or when we are just going through life, going through the motions without doing original, rational thinking.
People can go into angry rages, be addicted to drugs or alcohol, or any number of things, because of subconscious urges, habits, conditions, etc.
that over-ride the conscious mind and so people do seemingly very irrational things. These subconscious behaviors are seen as separate "entities"
from the conscious mind even in NLP, like for example the "entity" that reminds you that you are hungry is separate from and competes with the
"entity" that tells you to stay on the computer, and they are both separate and compete with the psychic "entity" in your mind that alerts you
that you have to use the bathroom. Eating and using the bathroom are biological functions rooted in your physical body, but still part of your
subconscious (Jung defined the subconscious as anything OTHER than your conscious mind in his technical definition -- including the external universe
around you). However a recurring "habit" of staying on the computer surfing for information or news, or playing a game, is a different kind of
psychological function, subconscious, that exists for better or worse.
Rational consciousness without subconscious has no memory. Remember, the Kahunas say your subconscious has the reasoning abilities of a 2-6 year old,
usually. But your consciousness, without a subconscious, is like a ghost. It can think, experience its sensory organs (if there are any), and
actively link ideas together that are available to it, but all memories are held in the subconscious. The relationship between the conscious and
subconscious minds is in practice like a traditional male/female relationship, respectively.
It would take someone very experienced and knowledgeable to bring both of these together, as well as enough vital energy, to make an actual entity
that has any physical correlation of any significance, that it can cause physical results, like the poster above said.
However there is nothing stopping anyone from creating all sorts of autonomous, self-propagating negative habits and addictions, and in fact this
happens to everyone, apparently without any conscious decision whatsoever. They also lack the reasoning that would come with such an intentional,
conscious decision, and are about as malicious as a 2-6 year old would be.
