As such, what use is all this speculation to us in our daily lives, other than to frighten us into behaving in ways that some feel we should behave?
God is unimaginable and invisible to us. At the same time He comes in HUMAN FORM to us. By this He answers all our spiritual doubts and gives the direction to us eye-to eye directly here itself. God enters a medium the best medium is a human being. He enters a devoted servant of Him and comes to us in human form so that we can mingle freely with Him and clarify all our doubts from Him directly here itself. Thus the human incarnation is a combination of God and Son of God in the same human body. The son of god has fully surrendered to the God, so that it is God who only speaks through the mouth of son of GOd- the divine knowledge.
Therefore the answer for your question is that Human incarnation is here to direct you in the spiritual path through His true divine knowledge.
It is impossible Impossible!! ,Present Human incarnation can be treated as God
The human being is unable to perceive even the energetic form of God hidden in the human form. The energetic form of God is in no way different from human form and thus Narayana is not all different from Krishna. In both God is one and the same. The external cover (Upadhi) only differs since the cover in Narayana is energetic form and the cover in Krishna is materialized human form.
If this is the state, how the human being is imagining to perceive the unimaginable original God? It is impossible. It is impossible. It is impossible. Even the intelligence limited by the dimensions of space and time cannot grasp God (Yo Buddheh …) who is beyond space and time. Only the most subtle item of the creation i.e., self (soul) can be grasped by the sharp intelligence (Drushyatetvagraya….).
In the human incarnation also, the soul exists but the unimaginable God charges it. You can grasp the soul present in the human incarnation but you cannot grasp God who is beyond the soul and charged it. Current is quite different from the wire but charges wire. Hence, you can treat such soul as God like treating the live wire as current. It is this charged divine soul existing in the body of Krishna that was referred by Him in Gita (Ahamatma…). Even the energetic body of God is intolerable and what to speak of the original God? Krishna referred to such original God as unknowable item to any one (Mamtuveda Na Kaschana…Gita). When Hanuman tore His chest and showed God in His heart, such God was only the energetic form of Rama. Rama was fully recognized by Hanuman and was constantly maintained in the heart because there was no point of repulsion between common media. Hanuman is a monkey where as Rama is a human being in the higher level. Hanuman exhibited several miracles but the monkeys could not recognize Him as God due to same repulsion of common media.
The monkeys accepted Rama because Rama is higher human being. Similarly, Arjuna could not fully accept Krishna due to same repulsion. But Arjuna could accept the higher energetic form of Lord Shiva since Krishna also worshipped Shiva. Similarly, the monkeys could not accept Hanuman as God because Hanuman also worshipped higher human form of Rama. Daksha, an angel with energetic form could not recognize Shiva as God for the same reason of repulsion. This repulsion of common media is existing even in the angels (Paroksha Priyah ...Veda). When God appeared before the angels in energetic form of light (Yaksha), they could not recognize God for the same reason.
