It’s possible, i guess? But, why would one attempt?
It’s like learning to play the piano by merely memorizing the chords. Or, learning how to dance by merely watching a video. Learning without doing could be possible but why try?
One can only see a learning come to life when one’s body move – touch those piano keys, sway hips. And of course, get your wire whisk and whip your first cookie.
Bottomline is, put your hands on your craft! Keep moving!
