I recently met a 60 year old witch, who told me about tulpas. There are like man-made spirits fueled by magic and thought, allegedly. Researching the topic, I read something saying that all gods and all spirits are tulpas, I which I believe it's a nice hypothesis, why not?
Does anyone here know any solid information about them? Even better, does anyone know about anyone trying to create a tulpa.

I've been investigating them a little over the past month or two, though unfortunately a good chunk of the information on the internet just retells the monk story.

First heard about them in a class, thought they were cool, and went on my merry way. Until I was reminded by something else that some poltergeist activity is actually caused by strong emotions and a lot of undirected energy in a household, usually originating with children. Well, it just so happens that I had a very trying 3 years starting when I was about 8 years old involving an abusive step-father in a house that he and my mom had purchased together.

We believed our house to be haunted by the previous owner, an elderly woman. She was a kind presence, though, and didn't often make herself known. But as my mother's marriage began to fall apart and things got a little more violent, the house became scary: I started seeing shadows and hearing things whispered to me at night. Doorknobs would turn on their own, and my mom, who is much more psychically sensitive than me, kept seeing a shadowed man about the property, and he would sometimes harass her.

After they got a divorce, the malevolent entity completely vanished, leaving us with the old woman again. (We sometimes hear her, but I'm not scared of her presence.)

So looking back, I am inclined to believe whatever this shadowy thing was, lurking in the corners of the house, was a tulpa, either unintentionally created by me, or me and my mom, out of fear.

So there you go. I think they're created by people all the time, honestly. Though those who create them deliberately are probably very few and far between. After all, they don't seem to have a particularly good rap; even some of the more benign manifestations, like a child's invisible friend. I think toying with something like that could seriously mess you up.
