Primary question: When doing the in bed visualization when first going back to bed and fully awake, which of the 3 do you think would be most effective:
Simply visualize doing the RC and let the visualization provide the input naturally.
Imagine how a dream might portray the RC (like 85:05 clock) and then do #1 above.
Actively visualize the RC indicating you are dreaming.
Follow up questions if so inclined:
Is there any harm in visualizing RCs along your ~20 steps (clock on phone, light switches, computer on/weird) before getting to digital clock?
Does this digital device with clock seem overly busy, or rather is it better in that it provides more opportunities to catch something off?
