Moments as we learn and use them today are derived from the 'law of the lever' discovered by Archimedes.
Probably the second most famous utterance attributed to Archimedes is "Give me a lever and a fulcrum and I shall move the world" (various versions exist) and apart from leaping out of a bathtub Archimedes is often depicted as a giant levering the planet Earth with a crowbar.
