Not to be picky or anything, but then you would need the aid of both the light of lightning and the sound of thunder, not to mention the ability to count, etc.
It's hard to say you do anything without the aid of ANYTHING

I have to add to the nitpickiness. Even if you altered the question to refer to physical things, possibly eliminating thunder and lightning, you are aided by your own eyes and ears, and they are most definitely physical things. A nifty teaser though, good information!!

not agreeing with everyone, hearing, seeing, and counting are abilities, not aids.
