Gurudev, what is the difference between Shiva Tattva and Krishna consciousness?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Shiva Tattva is a theory, it has no physical form.

Krishna is one who imbibed the Shiva Tattva in total, in the human form. Krishna was a historical figure. He lived 5,114 years ago.

Krishna walked on the planet, but he imbibed the Shiva Tattva. He was hollow and empty, and then he reflected the Shiva Tattva fully, time to time.
