My observation which resulted in the comment on the method was based on the
way it behaved in a very specific context based on the funky stuff I was
doing to the arrays where I was using it, and was more of a note to help me
figure out what was happening in that specific case (and that was the file
I snagged it from).

I probably should have removed that bit honestly to avoid confusion, so my
bad there, I don't have my head on straight right now, as I haven't been
able to sleep for the last three days, and it has more than caught up with
me. I am so tired. :(

The source for the snippet above is from below (if you aren't familiar with
the Processing site the source view icon looks like this: </> and pops up
if you hover your mouse at the top of the screen):

In their source there are a number of links, I included some here lower

This page is included in their references and contains some info:

The Processing snippet is itself a variation of code found below:

(From the link above)
Converting HCY to RGB

  // The weights of RGB contributions to luminance.
  // Should sum to unity.
  float3 HCYwts = float3(0.299, 0.587, 0.114);
  float3 HCYtoRGB(in float3 HCY)
    float3 RGB = HUEtoRGB(HCY.x);
    float Z = dot(RGB, HCYwts);
    if (HCY.z < Z)
        HCY.y *= HCY.z / Z;
    else if (Z < 1)
        HCY.y *= (1 - HCY.z) / (1 - Z);
    return (RGB - Z) * HCY.y + HCY.z;

Hopefully this helps.
