Victor Weisskopf wrote that science turns a single phenomenon
into a general form (law) and art turns a _general_ experience
into a single form. (Victor Weisskopf, The Privilege of Being
a Physicist, 1989 ?).

Weisskopf's argument - which is not totally free of faults -
is similar to yours, in some way, imo.
