Over 2,000 years ago, the ancient Greek scholar Archimedes reportedly proclaimed “Eureka! Eureka!” after he had stepped into a bath and noticed that the water level rose, whereupon he understood that the volume of water displaced must be equal to the volume of the part of his body he had submerged in the bath.
Eureka means, “I have found (it).”

Why should we write about such moments?
