In a very basic AFK pool, water flows in a circle, but it appears to flow up, as shown below: AFK pool

Why does this happen? Is it a visual glitch, or something else?

This is no glitch. What is happening, is that since the water detects the water block above it, it rises up to try and smooth out the graphics. Here's an example: Water flowing up

That's literally all it is, the graphics trying to look better by being smooth.
