I thought auto-mail was attached to the nerves, the ones that are already there. Not, by thought alone.

Literally everytime I get drunk I'm like "I can't ******* wait for automail!" I can't wait for drunk me to share this story.

Automail is cool and all... But I really just want my consciousness in a giant ass suit of armor.

Technically automail works with the nerves, it's the difference between a cup and a bowl. You can use either for both of their jobs.

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go try to transmute a human being.

Thats not new...
The human nervous system, while complex for a living thing, isn't actually that hard to understand. Its just a matter of interpreting the electric signals sent through the nerves and then programming a robotic limb to perform the correct motions associated with those signals.
Its the same basic principle as a computer keyboard. Different electrical signals for different keys, or in this case, motions, then interpreted by a simple computer program that then turns those signals into the appropriate action
