Katamo cassa ariyo ñāyo paññāya sudiṭṭho hoti suppaṭividdho?
A noble disciple carefully and properly attends to dependent origination itself …Idha, bhikkhave, ariyasāvako paṭiccasamuppādaññeva sādhukaṃ yoniso manasi karoti … pe …
This is the noble cycle that they have clearly seen and comprehended with wisdom.ayamassa ariyo ñāyo paññāya sudiṭṭho hoti suppaṭividdho.
What has been unsettling for me so far were the interpretations of ayoniso manasikara regards to the nimitta of beauty(subha), now i understand it is ayoniso when it gives rise to greed, the beauty itself isn't what is defining something to be yoniso or ayoniso.
I think the idea of dependent origination being yoniso is the cessation part, focusing on the nimittas what cause cessation, diminishing of greed.

Or what it means properly attending to dependent origination in your opinion?

To add,

“You understand something that can be known with the eye of wisdom.”“Neyyaṃ kho, āvuso, dhammaṃ paññācakkhunā pajānātī”ti.

“What is the purpose of wisdom?”“Paññā panāvuso, kimatthiyā”ti?

“The purpose of wisdom is direct knowledge, complete understanding, and giving up.”“Paññā kho, āvuso, abhiññatthā pariññatthā pahānatthā”ti.
it seem understanding of X purpose is direct knowledge,.., giving up.

It is attending with non-delusion/wisdom (ignorance having ceased) to the formations which entails either cessation of only unwholesome formations or cessation of first unwholesome formations and then all formations and thus dependent cessation.
Exhaling अ and inhaling धीः amounts to བྷྲཱུཾ་བི་ཤྭ་བི་ཤུད་དྷེ It's definitely not science but science may provide guidelines nevertheless.

'With' is different kind of paradigm.

To look to the origin. This dhamma that has come to be, what was its condition?
"Because of attachment to doctrines one approaches and refutes,
For those unattached, how can they dispute?
Not because self or no-self are said to be true,
He has only shaken off all harmful views."

But "with non-delusion" actually is attending 'without delusion' or 'attending empty of delusion' being 'properly attending'. So 'properly' implies cessation, not the addition of something else.
