This evokes a concept that's important in swimming....balancing perfectly so you have the feeling that you're effortlessly supported by the water, with all energy being devoted to propelling yourself forward. Just starting out we have to flutter our hands and feet to stay afloat, but as we learn to trust the water and push our head and shoulders back into it, the hands and feet struggle less and less against the water, and we feel complete bouyancy. The girl in 'levity' looks like she's practicing this very thing.
