Rationality vs Abstract Thoughts

The last few days, I had been experiencing frequent memory lapses, forgetting things unintentionally; the impulsive ones might even say it's selective amnesia. I do not know for sure what is the cause for this sudden strange mental outlook change. No I don't want to speculate, early conclusions will prove fatal.

But when one mental faculty collapses, other brain functions improve. The apparent pitholes formed by these memory lapses were compensated thru creation of more focused thoughts. And there was a sudden urge to know and to question the essence. So:

Memory lapses: reasons unknown; but stimulated rational thinking and spiritual thirst.

A question: can logic and religion unite?

This has got nothing to do with one's faith or principles for that matter. Somewhere previously, I wrote, religion begins where science fails. Many believe otherwise.

Another question: can abstract thoughts be explained logically?

An analogy here, can love be explained using mathematics. This statement doesnt mean I am being biased. Just adding a scope.

Third question: if the previous question was a yes, is religion just another form or mental displayal of escapism?

I know I shouldn't narrow down abstract thoughts to the context of spirituality or religion, it's not fair you might wanna argue. But let's just say spirituality is the mother of all abstract thoughts.

Last one: so are you a believer?
