Something I came up with real quick...

I'm high in the sky
But I'm also in the ground
I can exist in two dimensions
But it is in three, where I am also found

Sometimes I level the world around me
Or maybe I'm at a slant
Other times I'm a vessel-
I'm also the name of a certain type of plant

That should be enough, right?

I think it is:

plane

because:

I'm high in the sky

airplanes can be found in the sky

But I'm also in the ground

like crystal "Lattice plane"

I can exist in two dimensions But it is in three, where I am also found

both in 2d and 3d there are planes

Sometimes I level the world around me Or maybe I'm at a slant

planes can be either horizontal or slant

Other times I'm a vessel-

this could refer to planing - the mode of operation for a waterborne craft

I'm also the name of a certain type of plant

"Platanus", a genus of trees with the common name "plane"

  • $\begingroup$ @michal Don't count on it. Sometimes it is just matter of luck and state of mind ;) $\endgroup$ – kamenf Apr 27 '16 at 16:25
  • $\begingroup$ If I could just add one thing- The explanation for line 2 is a little bit off. I was referring to a tree's roots being in the ground. $\endgroup$ – michal Apr 27 '16 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ @michal Can you explain about tree's roots? I never met such use of "plane"... $\endgroup$ – kamenf Apr 27 '16 at 17:14
  • $\begingroup$ You said yourself that "Platanus", a genus of trees . I'm simply referring to this tree, which has roots in the ground. (I'm referring to the tree being in the ground.) $\endgroup$ – michal Apr 27 '16 at 17:30
