points are equally distant from the center of the earth, or rather would be so if the earth were an exact sphere.
Level 2Definition: A horizontal line or plane; that is, a straight line or a plane which is tangent to a true level at a given point and hence parallel to the horizon at that point; this is the apparent level at the given point.
Level 3Definition: An approximately horizontal line or surface at a certain degree of altitude, or distance from the center of the earth; as, to climb from the level of the coast to the level of the plateau and then descend to the level of the valley or of the sea.

figuratively, a certain position, rank, standard, degree, quality, character,

fluids seek a level.
Level 6Definition: An instrument by which to find a horizontal line, or adjust something with reference to a horizontal line.
Level 7Definition: A measurement of the difference of altitude of two
means of a level; as, to take a level.
Level 8Definition: A horizontal passage, drift, or adit, in a mine.
