    Stand, but not together.
    You'd get a more sensible answer if we had some context.

    It could be that something is positioned away from other things [The statue of Perseus stood apart from the pantheon of heroes] , or that an order is issued to someone to place themselves away from a group of people [I neeed one of you to be on guard. Jones, stand apart!]

    It could mean that two things shouldn't/couldn't be compared. A is so superior to B, that they stand apart.
    Any other guesses?
