I think eventually, yes. Just as we are not able to sense the vast majority of EM radiation, we mapped the spectrum and can sense most of it - and all we started with was detection of radiative heat and visual light.

I do think it would have taken much longer to arrive at the understandings we currently hold, but I don't think being able to see visible light was critical to arrive where we are. We would come up with ways to communicate and think about information with the senses we had.

We were so poor that we thought new clothes meant someone had died.
