Alas, it doesn't. He said: "The connection of the first three tetrads of Anapanasati with jhanas...", which I am disproving.
Disproving? It's clearly stated in the Vimuttimagga which Dmytro referred to:
Dmytro wrote:The connection of the first three tetrads of Anapanasati with jhanas is described, for example, in Vimuttimagga, - for eaxample, piti and sukha are understandably connected with the second and third jhanas.
Vimuttimagga Chapter on Mindfulness of Breathing:
- Of these sixteen [steps of ānāpānassati], the first twelve fulfill samatha and vipassanā, and are discerned as impermanence. The last four fulfill only vipassanā. Thus should samatha and vipassanā be understood....
And again, practice means attaining to a state (of jhāna) through mindfulness of breathing. This is practice. Through this mindfulness of breathing, one attains to the state which is with initial application of thought. That is the state which is with initial and sustained application of thought, and the state of sustained application of thought. The experiencing of joy is the state of the second jhāna. The experiencing of pleasure is the state of the third jhāna. The experiencing of the mind is the state of the fourth jhāna.
Thus you're not disproving anything.
All the best,
