A mass consciousness experiment, in the context of this question, being the intentional, concentrated collective focus of thought by a group of people (perhaps IQ folk?) to bring about a specific circumstance or outcome. My thoughts for this question were regarding manifesting a significant change in the weather.
George Noory, host of Coast to Coast, a late night talk radio program, has expressed strong feelings about this, feeling it is too much responsibility to take on, not being able to foresee all possible outcomes. I haven't been able to decide how I feel about it, but my instinct is telling me we do this all the time on different levels, and that effecting the human race is an unavoidable part of existing as a human. Still, I don't think I would enjoy experiencing what he did, so I brought my question here.
So very broadly, here is what happened as best I can recall: (Sorry I couldn't find a direct link.) Apparently several years ago this popular radio program tried calling upon their many listeners to participate in a mass consciousness experiment by asking them to concentrate on directing a large, strong storm to change direction to avoid hitting a particular area. I think what happened is that it worked very well, but resulted in the unintended consequence of the storm simply hitting a different populated area, causing damage and injury that possibly would not have happened in that area had it not been for the experiment.
For years afterward, Mr. Noory would not agree to any further requests from his listeners to try more experiments, so haunted was he by these consequences. I think he finally did relent and led one to specifically send a storm harmlessly out to sea. (Although, from what I have since learned about how connected global weather patterns are, I have to wonder just how "harmless" such a powerful thing can ever be.) He also set up for some time a specific invitation for listeners to pray for one another's healing, and invited stories of the effects of this, I think, somewhat safer-feeling mass consciousness experiment. :)
I joked yesterday that we could use some rain in Southern California, hinting that a mass consciousness experiment here would be fun, but immediately thought of what happened on Coast to Coast, and began wondering about this. I would love some rain, but if anyone was injured by it in some way, I think I would feel awful. I would love to know what you think.
This is the largest on-going mass consciousness experiment that I'm consciously aware of right now...
See Is Earth a giant extra-terrestrial 'experiment'? for more information.
It is perhaps a little late for an inhabitant of that particular planet to change their mind about participating in such experiments :)
I believe it is not only ethical, it is our duty to learn to harness this ability.
God gave us dominion of all existence. We are suppose to be the stewards, over everything.
Through history all new technology carried risks. The automobile was invented and soon after that the first car accident happened.
The first blood transfusions were hit and miss, resulting in lives saved but also resulting in many deaths. Then they found out about matching blood types. They could have said, "It is too risky. We should stop this and never again try this horrible experiment!" But they did continue experimenting and now it has been many years since someone died from a mismatched blood transfusion, but as well it has been many years lives were saved.
Likewise I believe it is our duty and responsibility to master weather control and harness nature.
The long term progress for humanity must be thought of. This is the reason for my Change The Law Of Attraction question.

When I read this question, for some reason, I remember an Old Coca-Cola Commercial that aired in the 70's.
It was a turbulent time, a sad time, what with the Vietnam War, the problem with Nixon, the rise of inflation- a time when we saw war on our TV sets and actually helped stop the war with our protests and our anger. I was in High School then, and I often felt very depressed and sad for America. I am not sure if this commercial aired exactly at the same time as these things, but I know it aired in the 70's.
The effect was immediate. It cheered people up, it gave us hope, it made us smile...and it sure did not hurt Coke, either! LOL I think that this is an example of a mass-consciousness experiment that wasn't intended to be an experiment, but changed how people thought and felt. Watch it and see what you think. Here's the Christmas rendition:
Perhaps I am wrong, nut I can only speak for myself. This commercial made me feel much better about the world, and gave me hope. I think it affected other people the same way. It raised our planetary vibrations....
Of course, the Media has such great power now- they can make or break even Presidents. But I remember when I was laying in bed, very, very ill, and Wade asked for prayers from IQ for me.
I truly believe that your combined prayers saved my life. They certainly made me feel good inside!
But don't forget this:
All it sometimes takes is just one man or woman who truly believes to save the world.
So We matter both as a group, and as individuals!

are you afraid that the earth will shake from the west to the east? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHaziU4YA4c
are you afraid that it will snow in the desert?
are you afraid that it will be very cold?
are you afraid that sink hole will open and swallow things?
do you need to play with the outside element?
the outside reflect the inside.
what do you want to test?
with what measure?
if you make hole in the inside is it not normal that eventually hole will appear on the outside?
even on the outside you can see it. they mine the ground for metal, oil, gas they take out from the ground making empty hole in the ground to get rich. after some time the ground it caves in and the hole fills up each action have a reaction. each element interact together.
the good question would be what is the end result. in the beginning someone decided to make a hole in the ground to fill up is bank account why because he needed to fill that hole so he would not collapse. if he would have know the beginning he would have know the end.
and could have filled back that hole. so it would not collapse. but of course he would not have made the same profit margin. but the desire was more important. and he needed it now fast. fill the hole for that inside desire.
