Interface Question

Please look at the code below:

Why the non-static method . can access public final static class variable LOW_GRAVITY? I understand that "you can't access non-static variable from a static method" but this scenario seems to be just opposite of the concept.
Why am I confused? I need some help

It is final and static. It cannot change the value and is accessible from everywhere everytime.

But you can access static resources anywhere in program (i.e. static and non static methods) as they belong to class.
