“In addition to this there is another form of temptation,more complex in its peril. For besides that concupiscence of the flesh whichlies in the gratification of all senses and pleasures, wherein its slaves whoare far from You [God] perish, there pertains to the soul, through the samesenses of the body, a certain vain and curious longing, cloaked under the nameof knowledge and learning, not of having pleasure in the flesh, but of makingexperiments through the flesh. This longing, since it originates in an appetitefor knowledge, and the sight being the chief among the senses in theacquisition of knowledge, is called in divine language, the lust of the eyes. (1 John 2:16) For seeing belongs properly to the eyes; yetwe apply this word to the other senses also, when we exercise them in thesearch after knowledge. For we do not say, Listen how it glows, smell how itglistens, taste how it shines, or feel how it flashes, since all these are saidto be seen. And yet we say not only, See how it shines, which the eyes alonecan perceive; but also, See how it sounds, see how it smells, see how ittastes, see how hard it is. And thus the general experience of the senses, aswas said before, is termed the lust of the eyes, because the function ofseeing, wherein the eyes hold the pre-eminence, the other senses by way ofsimilitude take possession of, whenever they seek out any knowledge.

Longitudinal. There are fewer well-conducted longitudinal studies (which assess participants repeatedly over time), but the growing body of such research also yields consistent effects of media violence from a meta-analytic standpoint. These studies measure aggressiveness at both the beginning and the end of the study, and statistically control for earlier levels of aggression while predicting later aggressive and violent behavior. This procedure rules out many alternative explanations, thus allowing stronger causal conclusions. For example, another explanation for the link between media violence and aggressive/violent behavior is that "naturally" aggressive children (by virtue of their biological or other unspecified characteristics) are more likely to both behave more aggressively and to consume more violent media. This alternative explanation predicts that longitudinal studies, in which level of innate aggression is statistically controlled (by partialling out Time 1 aggression level), will find no association between media violence consumption and later aggression/violence. The data consistently contradict this alternative possibility.

Thelearning and controlling of your sight will be most necessary forsalvation. You cannot fool God! Every time you look willfully withlust in your heart at an unchaste, enticing or unsuitable object, youhave most assuredly committed a mortal sin! Therefore, whenever youcome across something sinful (or even something licit but which isvery beautiful) with your eyes, you must make a habit to look down oraway – for the sin of lust will not be far away – makingthe sign of the cross and saying a Hail Mary, which is highlyrecommended and helps against impurities. Countless of Saints haverebuked people for the great error of failing to controlling theireyes. St. Ignatius Loyola for example rebuked a brother for lookingat his face more than a brief moment. St. Bridget made a specificconfession for every single face she saw during each day! This istrue wisdom, for the world tells you to always watch the person youare with in the face. This will many times lead to sins and impurethoughts.
