Oh, so this person couldn't possibly exist?
Hypothetical: Logic. a. (of a proposition) highly conjectural; not well supported by available evidence. b. (of a proposition or syllogism) conditional.
Of course this person could exist, there is just not well supported evidence available. Which means the best way to speak about this person would be in symbol, metaphor and hypothetical.
Getting back on topic I wanted to speak about another Biblical connection to the Image of the Beast of Revelation 13 and that's the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Now I do not believe that these people are literal, but written to represent an entire group of people during the Babylonian Exile who were faithful to the One True God. Daniel 3 has the King of Babylon proclaiming to the world to bow down and worship an image:
4 Then the herald loudly proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5 As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”
Babylon considered itself the empire of the world and therefore asks for nations and peoples of all languages to worship their idol under penalty of a fiery furnace. They were making an attempt to usurp the throne of God by getting total devotion and worship. People who create idols understand that they don't do anything, they just sit there. The feat of strength is to get the masses to bow down to it thinking they are worshipping a god when in fact they are worshipping a man and an empire. The Three Jews however refuse to worship it. Just like in Revelation 13 the image was purposefully erected as a loyalty test to expose truth loving Jews and kill them.
16 Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”
Most everyone knows where the story goes from here. God saves the Jews from the fire prepared specifically for them because of their faith. The Jews have had to deal with being forced to worship idols since their inception and the Watchtower Society is no different a foe. They too are interested in getting Spiritual Jews to worship an idol and use fear of spiritual death to assert their dominion over the earth. That's why they scower the planet searching for lovers of truth because they want to get them to bow down and do acts of worship to idols which will alienate them from their God.
Babylon's ultimate fate will be shared by the Watchtower and all false prophets when their great city falls into oblivion. Revelation 18 fortells this:
17 “‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’
The image set up by the king of Babylon was pure gold. That was the allure that was used to get the worship which is similar to the way the Harlot is clothed. She is extravagant and all the merchants of the world love her because they become rich off her luxuries. Yet, in "one hour" her wealth will be brough to ruin. She, along with the Watchtower Society, will share the fate of ancient Babylon.
25 “This is the inscription that was written:
mene, mene, tekel, parsin
26 “Here is what these words mean:
Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
27 Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
28 Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”
29 Then at Belshazzar’s command, Daniel was clothed in purple, a gold chain was placed around his neck, and he was proclaimed the third highest ruler in the kingdom.
30 That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain, 31 and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.
With the age of the internet in full swing, everybody can see the writing on the wall.
