What does "perception of FTL travel" mean? Who is having this "perception"? The travler or some one on Earth? Is the perception different for "perceivers" at rest in different inertial frames? Or do they all agree the traveler is traveling at some less than light speed? Sorry for so many questions, but I have no understanding of what you are speaking of / asserting. Are you just saying that I can swing a laser beam rapidly in angle and the spot it makes on a very distant screen appears to be moving faster than C?
