    I think it is a metaphor. What Archimedes means that given the right tools - like a lever , for instance, we can achieve greater things than is to be expected. 'Moving the world' is a metaphor for these achievements.

    actually it might be a paradox, because he can't stand anywhere if he moves the world.
