Balance...


interesting concept isn't it.

This comes from the Merrian-Webster Dictionary...

Etymology: Middle English, from Old French, from (assumed) Vulgar Latin bilancia, from Late Latin bilanc-, bilanx having two scalepans, from Latin bi- + lanc-, lanx plate
1 : an instrument for weighing: as a : a beam that is supported freely in the center and has two pans of equal weight suspended from its ends b : a device that uses the elasticity of a spiral spring for measuring weight or force c capitalized : LIBRA
2 : a means of judging or deciding3 : a counterbalancing weight, force, or influence
