- "Hey, uh, I got a dissertation here from Oxford University about the myth of an ancient Hindu weapon called the Brahmastra."

Anthropological analysis of the Brahmastra is the dissertation Julian Albert wrote for the University of Oxford, detailing the Brahmastra that he uncovered during an archeological expedition to India.
At some point during his affiliation with the University of Oxford, Julian Albert published this paper, which served as his PhD dissertation on history. The paper was presumably based on Julian's prior knowledge of the Brahmastra, making him an ideal target for Savitar to transform into Alchemy and assist him in creating meta-humans.
