Appearance means a document that states a person’s address for service, and is either—
an appearance and objection to the jurisdiction of the court under rule 5.49; or
an appearance for ancillary purposes under rule 5.50; or
an appearance reserving rights under rule 5.51; or
an appearance authorised by any other rule
any material, whether or not it is signed or otherwise authenticated, that bears symbols (including words and figures), images, or sounds, or from which such symbols, images, or sounds can be derived, and includes—
a label, marking, or other writing that identifies or describes a thing of which it forms part, or to which it is attached:
a book, map, plan, graph, or drawing:

Would you please explain how I, a human being of flesh and blood, may make an appearance as defined in the legislation?
