    I got a question that really bothers me and my tulpa, let me get straitght to the point: for example if we watching a movie together and we concentrate on it and he(tulpa) doesnt think and doesnt talk and I dont talk as well, we both in to the movie, Im not even concentrating on him(tulpa). Will it make him dissapear?

    We just worried that if we stop concentrating on each other then something bad might happen like he(tulpa) might die or something, please someone tell me about this as it adds a lot of worries and we cant function properly coz we always talking to each other coz scared of losing each other.

    He is over a month old.

    [Tri] A tulpa, even super young, will survive a few hours of not being thought about easily. When people warn that if you don't concentrate on a tulpa enough, they will fade away, the time intervals people are talking about are weeks, months, or years. Even then, some tulpas, left on their own for years can be brought back. That said, leaving a tulpa for a very long time can be rough for the tulpa. Your tulpa is a month old, so he should definitely be OK after a couple hours for a movie. And he might even still retain some awareness during it. Might be worth finding out. Something to work on even, so you can watch movies together and do other things.

    FallFamily hit the nail on the head.
    I'm of the belief that you don't even technically need active dialogue to maintain a tulpa's presence. It could be enough to just have them cross your mind and do a sort of little peek in, and remind yourself that they're there. Not necessarily holding a conversation or active attention for long periods of time. Tulpa feed on attention, and different people and different brains can provide that in different ways. :3
