I was just going to say earth's tangent, but I think you said it a little better!

(is it me or do people use rather large words in places that they could use rather simple ones and get the same point across? anyway moving on.)

 

Level would be the perspective on a single plane of existance that would constitute "flat". Though, if one wishes to be technical, you cannot gain a level surface within the universe, being as it rotates on not only three planes, but thousands. So, even if you can gain a "flat" surface on one plane, it is still not level in comparison to the other multitude of other planes. So, really, its all based on what I said at first, perspective.

It's called 'Being precise'; why use a short incorrect word, when you can use the right one? Would you use 'dog' instead of 'hamster', for instance?

I don't know what you're talking about here, but it's almost certainly wrong.

You can demonstrate this with a beachball, a piece of flat card, and a long hat pin :D
