That's the thing...I don't think he does. From the links he's provided, I've only seen him referenced as a magician. How do most people (according to Derren Brown, from his interview that was recently linked to on these forums) get into the whole "psychic" profession? The vast majority are either born into it, or they start out as magicians and learn the tricks of the trade, and make the leap to the charlatan side (because it offers more money, and more blind followers willing to buy into it boost their over inflated egos). Which is another thing he mentioned...they seem to have inflated egos. Look at all the names that were dropped in this thread (I like how he would essentially say "I don't like to name names, but..." then names started dropping like crazy, heh). Anyway, your post (as a whole) was very well said.
