Numerological Nontemperament is a scale developed by Rozencrantz the sane in a fit of irrationality. After reading about irrational ratios and Charles Lucy's use of pi, I wondered what a truly irrational scale would sound like. A rank-2 temperament, the large generator (formal-octave) is pi (approximately 355/113, a wide 12th) and the small generator is the golden ratio (around 830 cents)

The scale lies on top of the halberstadt keyboard quite nicely, though it lacks the key orientation that would make raised accidentals at all meaningful.
