Had the same thing in destiny when HoW came out. Having a hard time with Qodron before they fixed him. On ps3 so couldn't synth for gjallorhorn. Calles it a night after 30 wipes. Had a dream on how to beat him. In the dream I get a elder cypher. Woke up and told my friends the plan. I got the drop.
Holy shit. You're both on a psychic plane. Call it the subconscious mind but WHOA!
Dreams are often a way for the mind to work through solutions to problems.
In both of these situations, the dreamer had already tried and failed to resolve their problem in a multitude of ways. Ergo, their brains had many data points to extrapolate potential solutions. True memory of dreams tends to be fleeting, though, so we remember only the solution that ended up working, as that is the only one that gains any significance.
It's the same problem people have when it comes to fortune tellers: we tend to discard information that's irrelevant, but we remember accurate information.
It's also a case of dreams truly being more vague than we remember them being. We have a tendency to fill in blank spots in our "memory" from events that seem like they could have happened. The same thing happens in dreams, with even more malleability in what we "remember".
For example, if someone has a dream involving them being involved in a car crash, they won't usually remember much about the specifics unless they are either being coaxed into providing details or are in a car crash. The mind tends to go with the story that makes the most sense, so if you're coaxed, you tend to answer "yes" to the majority of questions asked about the dream, and if you were in a car crash, you'll "remember" the details of the dream lining up with how you remember the crash.
tl;dr: Memory of dreams is rarely correct to what you actually dreamed. Keep a dream journal, and you'll see how many details you only "remember" after something related to the dream happens.
