The fifth-generation cellular networks (5G) has boosted the unprecedented convergence between the information world and physical world. On the other hand, empowered with the enormous amount of data and information, artificial intelligence (AI) has been universally applied and pervasive AI is believed to be an integral part of the six-generation cellular networks (6G). Consequently, benefiting from the advancement in communication technology and AI, we boldly argue that the conditions for collective intelligence (CI) will be mature in the 6G era and CI will emerge among the widely connected beings and things. Afterwards, we highlight the potential huge impact of CI on both communications and intelligence. In particular, we introduce a regular language (i.e., the information economy metalanguage) supporting the future collective communications to augment human intelligence and explain its potential applications in naming Internet information and pushing information centric networks forward. Meanwhile, we propose a stigmergy-based federated collective intelligence and demonstrate its achievement in a simulated scenario where the agents collectively work together to form a pattern through simple indirect communications. In a word, CI could advance both communications and intelligence.
