The path

Reading deeply meditating and utilising mindfulness met the master ikkyu in a dream. He confirmed that when in the journey to realisation do not take any deception with you. Indeed recognise that all phenomena is but the play of Samsara ready to engage the monkey mind in delusion.

Lot of in's and out's.
When it comes to the Dudeist yarn, I look toward similar classic literary themes.
A favorite of mine is "The Tale of The Three Bears". Later version being "Goldilocks and The Three Bears".
The classic wandering Daughter job.

The classic literary rule of three. Which is used to illustrate a point about excesses.
The middle path being the wisest.
Moderation in all things, including moderation. That sort of thing.

Quote
The story makes extensive use of the literary rule of three, featuring three chairs, three bowls of porridge, three beds, and the three title characters who live in the house. There are also three sequences of the bears discovering in turn that someone has been eating from their porridge, sitting in their chairs, and finally, lying in their beds, at which point is the climax of Goldilocks being discovered. This follows three earlier sequences of Goldilocks trying the bowls of porridge, chairs, and beds successively, each time finding the third "just right". Author Christopher Booker characterises this as the "dialectical three", where "the first is wrong in one way, the second in another or opposite way, and only the third, in the middle, is just right". Booker continues: "This idea that the way forward lies in finding an exact middle path between opposites is of extraordinary importance in storytelling".[24] This concept has spread across many other disciplines, particularly developmental psychology, biology, economics and engineering where it is called the "Goldilocks principle". In planetary astronomy, a planet orbiting its sun at just the right distance for liquid water to exist on its surface, neither too hot nor too cold, is referred to as being in the 'Goldilocks Zone'.

But then there is the weird dangling thread about the third player.
None of the other teams seem to have 3 players. Only Walter, Donnie, Dude.
Meaning? It's wide open.
It's a complicated case.  Lotta ins. Lotta outs.  And a lotta strands to
keep in my head, man.  Lotta strands in old Duder's--

Is that some kind of eastern thing?
