Human beings have reflexes, but it is not an "immediate input-output" process. There is a structure in it with a time delay. That is why an instantaneous reaction do not occur, unlike the case of the law of action and reaction.
The output is delayed and comes through the internal time. Although other organisms have internal time delay structures too, human structures are longer, more complex, and more abstract. For example, sometimes it is several years later that we understand and execute what we heard today. We can act upon a feeling of gratitude that we had many years ago.
Having inner time is an extremely important property of intelligence, and it is a characteristic of humans to have time by the internal movement.
