Perhaps ironically, slack can be understood as a way of non-being. A way (even “The Way”) implies a path and destination. Slack knows it’s more about the journey. Aimlessness is a virtue. “The un-aimed arrow never misses the target.” Ways of being (even Being) imply proscriptions, disciplines, and “goals”. Slack asserts (weakly) that being is the “goal”; or, more properly, non-being. In any event, being and non-being are one, as incomprehensible without one another (in spite of the fact that one is incomprehensible) as night without day.
Slack appreciates the Zen, but is too lazy to put in that much of an effort. Lao Tzu’s “Way” (that isn’t a way…), the “tao”, is admirable, but too proscribed for the Discordian tone of non-being slack advocates. This is, if slack advocated anything…
Slack, one should further mention, is not to be equated with nihilism as a result of its vague, half-hearted assertion of non-being. Rather, even nihilism, the embrace of nothingness, is an ideological act too charged with meaning for slack. Slack would be nihilism, if it bothered; that is, if slack was actually being.
But, as noted, it is non-being. Maybe.
