This is a monograph about the "black widow" spider and the masculine erectile diffusion and about a scientific investigation that illustrates in a splendid way some local and endogenous development aspects, important topic in the double present: The society of knowledge and development in the middle of the 2009 crisis. It is about a case of cognitive synergy creation of a southern and left behind Chilean region, something like a philosophical stone that converts lead into gold, the ideal of any development proposal. Beyond the metaphor, it has to do with a real event that permits showing both a synthesis of the social change theory in the territory as a concrete event, important and notable, of a research that adjusts tightly to the mainstream postulates in the territory development issue.
