Science and art are the head and tail of the same coin when it comes to solving real life problems.
With science, we search for similarities of things that appear different. We focus on linearities and direct connections between causes and effects.
With art, we search for differences among things that are apparently similar. We focus on non-linearities and intricate connections between causes and effects.
To solve real life problems we need to be skilled in both science and art. This is because situation governing every problem is unique. That is why most real life problems are complex in nature.
Seen realistically, solving real problems puts science and art together again. Actually, they were never born apart.
Taken together; they lead us to truth.
