Conscious attachment to the observation of the abdomen rising and falling...

if you can notice the abdomen rising and falling, but offer no commentary, attachment or conscious concentration on the abdomen rising and falling.....

Then, as the article says, "he has had Insight knowledge to realize both Rupa and Nama. "

I don't want to sound harsh, but what exactly is the use in knowing that things rise and fall? Don't we already know that? Don't we already know, through daily experience and observation, that things are impermanent?
