Don't understand any of this

  • This scale... is functionally identical to a compromise between the meantone/superpyth diatonic and chromatic scales.

I have no earthly idea what this means. Could someone explain?

  • As a magic scale, it is uneven enough to fall within the region of optimal melodic tunings for magic[13] (L:s = δAg to 6-δAg).

Is there some problem with characters here or something? Is that really supposed to read L:s = delta A g to 6 dash delta A g? What in the world does that mean?

  • Because of this property, magic[13] is a good 19 tone mode for people who want to explore new sounds without having to give up using strongly harmonic fifths (3/2 +/- ~6rt(36/35)) for building consonant chords.

The MOS magic[13] is not a 19 tone mode. It has 13 tones. Hence the [13]. Where does 19 come from? Also where in the world does "(3/2 +/- ~6rt(36/35))" come from?

What are these numbers?

Some numbers which look like cents are listed, but they are not the cents vales for the corresponding listed generators g nor for 1-g. Is one of them a telephone number?
