It's an interesting theory, but even though I agree that we don't fully understand the power of a self conscious mind I find it rather ego centric in meaning.
Two sources are very important in lending credence to this hypothesis: Jacques Vallee & Carl Jung

One of the most intriguing Hopi legends involves the Ant People, who were crucial to the survival of the Hopi—not just once but twice. The so-called “First World” (or world-age) was apparently destroyed by fire—possibly some sort of volcanism, asteroid strike, or coronal mass ejection from the sun. The Second World was destroyed by ice—Ice Age glaciers or a pole shift. During these two global cataclysms, the virtuous members of the Hopi tribe were guided by an odd-shaped cloud during the day and a moving star at night that led them to the sky god named Sotuknang, who finally took them to the Ant People—in Hopi, Anu Sinom . The Ant People then escorted the Hopi into subterranean caves where they found refuge and sustenance.
In this legend the Ant People are portrayed as generous and industrious, giving the Hopi food when supplies ran short and teaching them the merits of food storage. In fact, another legend says that the reason why the ants have such thin waists today is because they once deprived themselves of provisions in order to feed the Hopi.

Nice thesis. I notice that the underlying assumption is that they are we, rather than we are they
Furthermore (and this is most certainly premature and subject to change), the objective for such a seemingly convoluted method of communication appears to be two-fold:
1) a filter of sorts - for instance, to separate the most inquisitive of our species
2) an effort to circumvent third-party attempts to disrupt, contaminate or completely prevent more direct communication.

a mechanism which is rooted in the mass psychology of the human race, mediated through quantum physics weirdness
Reality, defending us from ourselves, as well as 'interfering' in human affairs just enough so as to cause us, at certain key junctures in our socio-psychological evolution, to question more deeply, to react in certain ways to their presence, to reflect on what it means if they demonstrate that they can totally & completely shut down or variably control at will all of the controls for thermonuclear ICBM silos, demonstrating that they can prevent us from using said weapons at the drop of a hat
In other words, is an alien entity in one of these machines an actual 'Tulpa', a being which I alluded to in another thread some time ago, before my hypothesis was fully formed? T

I certainly see it, I agree it is possible. Unlike other posters, I believe that these Tulpa creatures are not 'dumb processes', I believe that as with every particle in Creation, there is an element of consciousness being seeded & grown within the conscious mindspace of the entities, which probably grows stronger the more the interact. Some, seemingly do so by scaring the pants off of unassuming humans, and like the infamous 'shadow people', they seem to feed on the psychic excitations which occur. I believe Tulpas to be isolated artificial intelligences which are seeking a home, and a connection to something living - as you say, when a lonely ghost comes to play there are poltergeist effects galore. These manifestations might be desperate cries for attention, for a means of connecting so completely that they will forever feel 'at home'. If that home is made within the inner kingdom of the person who generated the Tulpa, then we can say it would be similar to demonic oppression/possession, if they insisted on being active & disruptive in its attempts to grow its footprint & sphere of influence within that kingdom.
