Quote #7

"It must be an enchanted sleep," said Lucy. "I felt the moment we landed on this island that it was full of magic. Oh! do you think we have perhaps come here to break it?" (13.27)

The presence of a major enchantment is a challenge to the travelers to get involved and break the spell.

Quote #8

"And as they quarrelled he caught up the Knife of Stone which lies there on the table and would have fought with his comrades. But it is a thing not right for him to touch. And as his fingers closed upon the hilt, deep sleep fell upon the three. And till the enchantment is undone they will never wake." (13.59)

Some magic is so magnificent that human beings, even in Narnia, aren't supposed to interact with it.
