Why contour line never cross?

Contour lines denote the boundaries between levels in whatever data they're representing. For example if a map has height contours plotted on it, then the area between any two contour lines has a height that is above the lower contour value and below the upper contour value. If contour lines crossed that would indicate that the place where they cross has two separate values for the same measurement - in this case the land where the lines crossed would have 2 different heights, which is impossible.
