It is here that C. S. Lewis deviates from the original Greek myth. In the original, Psyche's sisters could see the castle. But for C.S. Lewis this phenomenon was inadequate as a metaphor for faith. Faith is the justified belief in things unseen. It is not a leap to believe in something rationally testable and tangible. If Orual is to find faith, she must believe in things she cannot see.
