comment Are our brains just energy conserving systems?
I think you be either alluding to or interested in Friston's free energy principle: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_energy_principle

comment Is being naked good for you?
I feel like this question, as it stands, lacks any theoretic motivation. There are an infinite number of questions we could ask about the human mind, but only a small finite amount of resources. If you could broaden the context of why you are interested in this question, then perhaps some relevant research literature could be found to answer it, even if they only use related constructs (e.g. work on activism or modesty or fashion depending on your motivation for asking).

comment Regarding “a human brain can hold enough information to fill 10 libraries”, can we quantify the memory required for a given task?
'Synaptic connections created' is a pretty bad metric for memory, since most memories are created by changing the weights of existing connections rather than creating new connections.
