what does "the slate of time"mean? But Johnson's ignorance of Ira Gearhart's football was real enough, and so were Gearhart's difficulties with the agents of the Vice Presidential detail at Parkland. The assassination did not signal a sneak attack, so the price of folly was unpaid. Instead, the lesson was written on the slate of time in cosmic letters and left to be learned.

The author is just using a metaphor, comparing time to a "slab" or a "tablet" (a thin piece of rock with a smooth surface), on which lessons can be written.
