Yes, but not deeply, more akin to instinctual reactions.

Depth cuts a bunch of different ways. We couldn't abstract without what most people call thinking. But sometimes that direct experiencing is very deep and all that mental babbling is much more shallow, even when nicely packaged in an academic paper.
