A tulpa as I have come to believe is simply an autonomous consciousness which also exists in a self imposed hallucinatory body, which is usually much of your choice. A tulpa is entirely sentient and in control of its opinions, feelings, movements.(tulpa.info)
Essentially, it can think on it's own and is real, but only from your perception. It's conscious is running on your conscious, it has nothing to do with your soul/spirit. It originates in Tibetian Buddhism. It has access to your subconscious(if you allow it) and typically helps you. It cannot be seen by others, BUT there have been "group tulpae" in which multiple people have developed a similar tulpa, but not exactly the same.
