Good question! According to Mike Dooley (and I think Seth?), for now, settled expectations of mass-consciousness observe certain agreed-upon rules, like rules that say humans cannot fly without aircraft or some apparatus, or rules that say growing back a limb cannot be done.
However, the tricky thing is that, mass-consciousness also observes the agreed-upon truth that we, as humans--or rules governing humans--can evolve and change
(like new science based on stem-cell research or animal cloning, and like breaking world records in sports as time goes by (e.g.
, the marathon record increases incrementally as time goes by)).
So, theoretically, if there were a mass-shift in human consciousness on the topic of flying, we might be able to fly without aircraft, provided that our agreed-upon rules change. An example of this might be where are beliefs might be shifting as to whether meditators can levitate short distances for short periods of time.
As well, Seth talked about our beliefs in miracles and magic, whereby we would accept that sometimes, under certain conditions, people could fly, or a limb could regenerate. So the bottom line: where mass beliefs allow certain occurrences--whether by evolution in rules or by special variances from such rules (e.g., miracles), then yes, humans and--even pigs--could fly without aircraft!
