"It follows than that God is served better through physicality than religious devotion."

What about "rachmana liba baei"?

"It is only in the darkness of physicality that His Essence, the essence that underlines all Existence, can be grasped."

"Grasping" is a mental concept; what relevance does it have to physical actions unaccompanied by spirituality?

And if R' Levin simply prefers the conative over the cognitive, certainly not an unheard-of position in Jewish philosophy, you wish he could have said so a little more clearly.
