The Buddha: “There are five things that can turn out in two ways in the here-&-now. Which five? Conviction, liking, unbroken tradition, reasoning by analogy, & an agreement through pondering views. These are the five things that can turn out in two ways in the here-&-now. Now some things are firmly held in conviction and yet vain, empty, & false. Some things are not firmly held in conviction, and yet they are genuine, factual, & unmistaken. Some things are well-liked… truly an unbroken tradition… well-reasoned… Some things are well-pondered and yet vain, empty, & false. Some things are not well-pondered, and yet they are genuine, factual, & unmistaken. In these cases it isn’t proper for a knowledgeable person who safeguards the truth to come to a definite conclusion, ‘Only this is true; anything else is worthless.”SuttaCentral

2.2 If they meditate observing rise and fall in the ear faculty … nose faculty … tongue faculty … body faculty …jivhindriye ce, bhikkhu, udayabbayānupassī viharanto jivhindriye nibbindati … pe …
2.3…mind faculty, they grow disillusioned with the mind faculty. manindriye ce, bhikkhu, udayabbayānupassī viharanto manindriye nibbindati.
2.4 Being disillusioned, desire fades away. … When they’re freed, they know they’re freed. Nibbindaṃ virajjati … pe … vimuttasmiṃ vimuttamiti ñāṇaṃ hoti.
This further along the path of development leads to:
“Mendicants, develop immersion.
A mendicant who has immersion truly understands.
What do they truly understand?
The origin and ending of form, feeling, perception, choices, and consciousness [5 aggregates].
