the definition of mastering is to finalize your production by taking every song on your project that were mixed and recorded at different times and tamming the frequencies and dynamics of every song on the project. And making every song sound continuous in loundness and character from song to song it a medium wheather CD and so on.

Wrong explination. Compression controls your dynamics ur up and downs in levels, limiting do not bring ur lows up. Limiting is the samething as compression just soft knee, a higher ratio(10:1) or higher, and a faster attack time and release time. and Eq is only for boosting and cutting frequencies. And I wouldn't be so confindent about saying no mastering engineer makes better music than if u. From what I see if u don't kno what a compressor eq or limiter is really doing u not even messing with me.
