Abstract: Collective intelligence as a superior entity or superorganism resulting from the combination of cybernetics and evolutionary biology is central to the progress of a community in the global era. The decisions that regulate the same democratic processes of the groups, in the idea of describing an intelligent behavior that manifests itself collectively, they can be compared to the swarms of bees, to the hive. The identity of individuals, as theorized by the philosopher Pierre Levy is canceled by the network in the age of cyberspace, freeing the field for a “flattening of individuality” sacrificing it on the altar of ICT. The Global Brain interconnects all’human beings to technological devices within a network that accumulate and process information taking data from social networks and interactive platforms. The hybridizations between machines and interactive platforms allows you to tap into a huge amount of "Big Data". This massive amount of data through specific algorithms, has socialeconomic impact on consumption, political dream, and institutional effects. The hegemony of the network requires democratization interventions. Legal civilization should be directed towards a correct and ethical right to rediscovery the “natural law”. The reaffirmation of personal subjectivity and the protection of the fundamental rights of the individual in relation to technological changes that see in the data holders the real depositaries of sovereignty over the peoples it requires corrections belonging to the sphere of law. A slender right made by of a few rules or many principles schematized procedure for private alternatives appears a possible solution.
