    In simple terms this means that without other forces acting on water (such as wind) then the surface will be level. Water will fill whatever container it is in (be it a bowl or a lake) and the top of one side will be the same height as the top of the other.

    "Water seeks its own level" means that everything will seek its own equilibrium state. When conditions are unstable, changes and readjustments will occur until a state of stability is reached. Dmitri Mendeleev, a Russian chemist, says: "There exists everywhere a medium in things, determined by equilibrium."

    "Water seeks its own level" is different from "birds of the same feather flock together", i.e. where people tend to associate with people of the same frequency or social status.
