Those dotted lines in the middle of panel three are not to be taken literally. They're just there to make clear how much imbalance there is left.
Speaking of balance, this is a really big balance scale. I didn't know to call it that, so when I searched for a visual reference on YouTube and tried various searches involving "scales", I mostly got stuff about the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game.
I mean, sure, children's card games, great, but I was TRYING to double check whether a balance scale would look like this if not quite equal, and I don't have balance scales just lying around.
I mean, it might be cool to get one, but now we're getting tangential.
