It's a figure of speech meant to contrast with the artificial nature of Otto's mechanical arms. That much really should have been obvious from the beginning. Or perhaps I should have chosen my words more wisely. I suppose I could have said "nurturally" to refer to how attitudes are formed over time and not something a person is born with, but that's not even a word. And yes, it was a contradictory statement (which was also meant as a brief clarification). I sort of pointed that out in the portion of my post you quoted. Regardless, it's a small nitpick on my overall argument that really isn't worth obsessing over too much.
