The purpose of this work is to relate conceptions around the concept of net adopted by the spiritualist movement "New Era" from the city of Posadas, Misiones, Argentina, with those considered by theorists of the "Era of Information and Communication" in the field of Social Sciences. Given the complexity and range that it is attributed to this notion we have designated the Great Net to that factual and virtual construction which is assigned multiple names: interconnection, interrelation, articulation. These complex and heterogeneous links develop among elements, dimensions and different levels, such as material nature and spirituality, man and nature, society and the individual. In accordance with that we ask ourselves regarding religious beliefs, ideological creations, scientific productions or mythological constructions that constitute the world-net of the view of the world of the New Era and the culture-net of the socio-anthropological approaches.
