- "My operating thesis at the time was that the mind is the single most powerful force in the universe."
- ―Dr. Vinpur Natpudian.[src]
Dr. Vinpur Natpudian was a researcher and guru and the author of Anything is Possible. He taught that humans, being made of the same matter as the rest of the universe, were everywhere at once and that because of that, the mind was the greatest power in the universe.
- "I remember that guy. He made a big noise a few years ago on public television. Then had a big case of Joe Recluse."

Dr. Natpudian was a wealthy health guru, popular with the economic and entertainment elite of Los Angeles and became something of a public television celebrity. However, Natpudian suffered a nervous breakdown and retired from public life after conducting an exclusive retreat with yogis and doctors, among them Ronald Meltzer. Natpudian introduced Meltzer to psychic surgeons, yogis capable of shutting down their somatic systems at will, even for days. Up until then, Natpudian's research had been based on mere theory and hearsay, but after witnessing what Meltzer was capable of, he began to truly believe his teachings. Angel met Natpudian at his home while investigating Meltzer.
