Do you think it would be possible to "organize" a rally?  Or a sell-off, could go either way.

If you started several threads, calling everyone to buy "all-in" on, say, Feb 1st, to make an artificial rally, would it happen?

It's hard to say... I mean, some people might do it, which means other people would be interested in doing it as well to "catch the wave", so to speak.  It could compound to the point where lots of people end up buying in on Feb 1st.  But then, probably just as quickly, people would sell, because they knew it was an artificial rally and they knew that others would sell as well.

But, if all of this is known in advance, wouldn't people take that in to account in today's trading price?  I mean, if I know there's going to be a rally on Feb 1st, wouldn't I want to buy a day or two early, to ensure that I get the lowest possible buy-in price?

If you have a lot of money, you could state that you plan to buy 50,000 coins on Feb 1st in the hope of starting an artificial rally.  You'll also state that you won't buy them all at once, but have various buy orders throughout the day (so that no one can tell when you bought and dump their own coins right after they see the purchase).  But then again, people would probably buy early, then try to sell in the middle of the day when they think it will go no higher, pushing the price back down.

So, is it not possible to start an artificial rally?

The game is to rape the economy, not artificially inflate it..
