In some sense not only can, but must. Homo sapiens was the same then and now, and prehistorical man elaborated some concepts of abstraction yet unsurpassed.
Humans as a species take some time to adapt to changes. I always think of say only 20 to 30 grandfathers ago cities of the early christian era now completely destroyed stood in full life. So that the experience of these ancestors remain culturally in us looks quite natural, be it in good or what we now assume to be bad traits. The apparition of electrical light is only say 2 grandfathers ago, and that of computing not even one. So whatever you do in practice is likely to embody some past views. You will do it subconsciously a lot of times, but nothing prevents you from doing so in full awareness to provide some happiness to people.
