Is she Tom’s new alien bride?

No major studio in town would touch it, so Tom Cruise has shifted into Cruise-o-matic, and is self-bankrolling a film about Scientology called The Thetan.  He’s already tagged Victoria Beckham [aka Posh, of the Spice Girls] for the role of an alien bride.

Any movie about Scientology has to have aliens in it, of course, because it’s about… Scientology… and aliens are a staple for the Sci guys and girls.  This one takes it’s name from the mystical Thetan, which is… well… it’s hard to say, since it’s been explained in several different ways by the Church of Scientology itself.

A thetan is an immortal spiritual being; the human soul.
The being who is the individual and who handles and lives in the body.
A thetan is not a thing, a thetan is the creator of things.
A thetan is the person himself — not his body or his name, the physical universe, his mind, or anything else; that which is aware of being aware; the identity which is the individual. The thetan is most familiar to one and all as you.

Got that?

If not, there’s a much longer explanation linked at Wikipedia, below.
