    Scriptures usually say that people as such never fall from the spiritual world ,if krishna desires to enjoy pastimes with his devotees while his descent, then krishna himself arranges in some or other way to fall from spiritual world, but that cannot be said as actually fall. for eg there is a story in the purana where srimati radha has been cursed by sridama to take birth on earth. similarly there is a story of jaya and vijaya. extending this further to certain aspects of vedic culture like worshiping saligrama sila is said to be curse of devi tulsi, that lord is worshiped in the form of saligrama sila. some purana even say that lord appears yuga after yuga on earth because of the curse of asura vrinda(tulsi) because lord vishnu broke her chastity. but these reason are apparent and superflous ,and not real, for lord can never fall. similarly his devotees who have personal contact with krishna in spiritual world, never fall. but still ,the question of how then we all are here ,when did we come here ,cannot be answered definitively ,as you said it is achintya. But still the scriptural statement that one who attains the spiritual world ,never comes back ,attains immortality must be accepted.
