Do you beleive in collective unconscious?

For the ones who are not familiar with the term: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_unconscious
Do you think that it exists? Are the experiments done towards to prove it are right? Or are they just bad examples of scientific experiments?

      May 29 2012: Ok, I might be wrong here, because it's late and I really should go to sleep, but it seems to me you're not referring to the actual term Kardelen has asked about. The wikipedia article seems to describe collective unconscious more as as inherited experiences, values, unconscious patterns which are "collective" to the species. (in some sense, this is undoubtedly true, albeit trivial)

      What you seem to suggest sounds more like a shared mind / group consciousness?
