Apparition [EXCLUSIVE]

Apparition was called Disapparition from the point of view of someone at the place being left, and Apparition from the point of view of someone at the destination, much like the words "disappear" and "appear".


In 1979, Kreacher managed to escape the Horcrux cave via Disapparition, following Regulus Black's order to "come home when he finished his task". Later, in 1997, he brought Mundungus Fletcher into Grimmauld Place with side-along Apparition.[13]

Harry never took the Apparition Test, although he impressively initiated side-along Disapparition with Dumbledore to get him back from the sea cave to Hogwarts, when he was weak. Harry was still underage at the point, but he was holding Dumbledore's arm, and therefore the Ministry would not have Traced him. After Harry turned 17, he Apparated at least once alone to Grimmauld Place under his Invisibility Cloak,[9] and several times side-along with Hermione and Ron under the cloak. The Ministry never knew because by then they were no longer underage, so the Trace did not work.

An Anti-Disapparition Jinx could be used to prevent a witch or wizard from Apparating or Disapparating to or from a location. Many magical places, such as British Ministry of Magic Headquarters, French Ministry of Magic Headquarters, Woolworth Building (headquarters of the MACUSA), the Crystal Cave, Nurmengard Castle, Hogwarts Castle, Azkaban, and the cellar in Malfoy Manor were warded off against Apparition, which prevented people from simply appearing inside those places, forcing them to have to physically venture to them or Apparate near them, as well as preventing people inside the places from being able to leave by means of Disapparition. Hogwarts had an Anti-Disapparition Jinx cast upon it for most occasions, and when Harry, Ron, and Hermione Apparated into Hogsmeade shortly before the Battle of Hogwarts, the Death Eaters had already placed an Anti-Disapparition Jinx on Hogsmeade in order to keep the three trapped there.

There was a method of teleportation used by house-elves which was not influenced by the jinx, as they were bound by more powerful magic requiring them to appear whenever their master called. However, it was possible that all known Anti-Disapparition Jinxes worked only on humans, for it had been bypassed by creatures such as house-elves and phoenixes.[3]

Portkeys could also be used to access or depart from locations bound by an Anti-Disapparition Jinx. House-elves could, however, take humans along with them when Disapparating regardless of whether or not there was an Anti-Disapparition Jinx on the area, as Dobby did during the skirmish at Malfoy Manor.

early 15c., "supernatural appearance or manifestation," from Anglo-French aparicion, Old French aparicion, aparoison (15c.), used in reference to the Epiphany (the revealing of the Christ child to the Wise Men), from Late Latin apparitionem (nominative apparitio) "an appearance," also "attendants," in classical Latin "service; servants," noun of action from past-participle stem of apparere "appear" (see appear).

Tales of ghosts, wraiths, and other apparitions have been reported in virtually all cultures. The strange sensation that somebody is nearby when no one is actually present and cannot be seen (feeling of a presence, FoP) is a fascinating feat of the human mind, and this apparition is often covered in the literature of divinity, occultism, and fiction. Although it is described by neurological and psychiatric patients and healthy individuals in different situations, it is not yet understood how the phenomenon is triggered by the brain. Here, we performed lesion analysis in neurological FoP patients, supported by an analysis of associated neurological deficits. Our data show that the FoP is an illusory own-body perception with well-defined characteristics that is associated with sensorimotor loss and caused by lesions in three distinct brain regions: temporoparietal, insular, and especially frontoparietal cortex. Based on these data and recent experimental advances of multisensory own-body illusions, we designed a master-slave robotic system that generated specific sensorimotor conflicts and enabled us to induce the FoP and related illusory own-body perceptions experimentally in normal participants. These data show that the illusion of feeling another person nearby is caused by misperceiving the source and identity of sensorimotor (tactile, proprioceptive, and motor) signals of one's own body. Our findings reveal the neural mechanisms of the FoP, highlight the subtle balance of brain mechanisms that generate the experience of "self" and "other," and advance the understanding of the brain mechanisms responsible for hallucinations in schizophrenia. 041b061a72
