Traditionnaly, this fourth Jhana is seen as the beginning of attaining magic powers.
Further, four arupajhanas, which can be thought as part of the fourth rupajhana, still consist in the two factors of Upekkha and Ekkagata.
Arupajhanas are non material ones, which seem clear about the object of the first arupajhana.

 Buddhism Today - Dda.o Pha^.t Nga`y Nay, default page-english
There are eight stages of meditative absorption; the first four are the absorptions of form (rupajhana), and the remaining ones are formless absorptions (arupajhana), the highest of which is known as the Sphere of Neither-Perception-Nor-Non-Perception (nevasañña-nasañña-yatana).
However, if one consistently perseveres until attainment concentration (appana samadhi) is gained, one may continue to achieve any of the eight levels of absorption.
The other four are called absorptions of the formless sphere (arupajhana) because, rather than focusing the mind on any concrete form, the meditator employs abstract concepts as objects of concentration.

 Vipassana   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Thus, the type of seeing denoted by vipassan is that of direct perception, as opposed to knowledge derived from reasoning or argument.
Vipassan meditation consists of an energetic observation of physical objects and mental representations (nama and rupajhana) and thought-processes in their aspects of impermanence, Dukkha and lack of an inherent, independent essence or anatta.
To see through the mode of impermanence means to examine things as to whether they are permanent.

There may also be clinging to rebirth without the wrong view of self who continues to exist.
Clinging to the result of rupajhana (fine-material jhana), which is rebirth in a rupa-brahma plane, and,clinging to the result of arupa-jhana (immaterial jhana), which is rebirth in an arupa-brahma plane, are forms of clinging which are included in bhava-tanha.
Vibhava-tanha, craving for non-becoming, is annihilation-belief which is a kind of wrong view.

The wholesome state of mind here in this case will of course be the mind of loving kindness.
The depth of concentration reached is the fourth form absorption (four rupajhana) in the fivefold classification.
In fact one can extend it to the unlimited number of beings.

Thus the practice of austerities will only cause hardships and pain and the performance of animal sacrifice will certainly lead to the lower worlds.
It is also upadana over silabbata to believe that rupajhana or arupajhana means complete salvation.
In short, even the moral perfection or jhanic attainment in the mundane sphere, though commendable, may lead to silabbatupadana if it is divorced from the holy path of vipassana and regarded as the total liberation.

But as Visuddhimagga says, some people develop a craving for the sensual pleasures of the Brahma world because they believe either through hearsay or speculation that such pleasures are superior to those of the human and deva-worlds.
It is no other than their sensual craving that leads to the attainment of rupajhana, arupa jhana, samapatti and finally lands them in the rupa or arupa brahma worlds.
It is not surprising that some people think or speak of the sensual pleasure in the Brahma world.

The Form Sphere is the dwelling place of form-Brahmas [rupabrahma].
Such beings also are derived from people who managed to train themselves in meditation until they attained the 'form absorptions' [rupajhana].
When they passed away, their body was buried or created, but their mind (astral body) had no further attraction for the Sphere of Sensual Pleasure so they escaped from this Sphere into the Sphere of Form and took rebirth as a form-Brahma.

As soon as they come out of jhana they can discriminate.
When they shift from rupajhana and become absorbed in arupajhana they can identify rupajhana with sauttara and arupa jhana with anuttara state of consciousness,
So the non-jhana yogi should merely note the above-mentioned states of consciousness as they are at the moment of their arising.

It is often said that samádhi frees the mind from sensation, defilements, desires, ignorance and all compounded thoughts.
Those who say so forget about the hermits who are very skillful in samádhi practice to such high levels of tranquility as rupajhana (absorption of the Fine Material Sphere) and arupajhana (absorption of the Immaterial Formless Sphere).
But no hermits attain purity of the mind by samádhi.
