    Couldn't the split in cultures also be put down to a climate difference. A lot of the third world is barran land, or desert, or rainforest. Therefore it was harder to grow stuff, whereas in the first world we could grow our own food a lot better. And if ya don't have enough food, its never gonna be easy.
    Also the third world is usually more prone to drought and famine. That would severly restrain any culture.

    Egypt and Babylon (persia) were huge empires, but in desert areas. The Roman empire thrived though much of its territory was in the MED and Northern Africa. Drought doesn't help but clever people can get round it.
