SN 22.102

“And how, bhikkhus, is the perception of impermanence developed and cultivated so that it eliminates all sensual lust, eliminates all lust for existence, eliminates all ignorance, and uproots all conceit ‘I am’? ‘Such is form, such its origin, such its passing away; such is feeling … such is perception … such are volitional formations … such is consciousness, such its origin, such its passing away’: that is how the perception of impermanence is developed and cultivated so that it eliminates all sensual lust, eliminates all lust for existence, eliminates all ignorance, and uproots all conceit ‘I am.’”

what is "such"?
"Just as the ocean has a single taste — that of salt — in the same way, this Dhamma-Vinaya has a single taste: that of release."
— Ud 5.5

Short for "such and such", common English phrase to refer to any person or thing in general.

‘Such’ means of the type previously mentioned, in this case it is impermanence, meaning the terrible cycle of birth, growth, maturity, ageing and death that all samsaric things are subject to.

"The way it is", eg "This is the way form is, this is the way it originates, this is the way it passes away".
Buddha save me from new-agers!
