At the end, you realised that you have nothing at all.
Your loved ones are impermanent. Your home is impermanent. Even our planet is impermanent. This is a deep teaching from a Buddhist perspective. When you pass away, you cannot bring anything whether to heaven or hell with you. Your soul would be the only thing that you can bring with. Then, your human body would be just being a corpse. Later, it turns out to be dust to dust or ashes to ashes.
Shells were explored as a metaphor to represent how our human body being a container for our soul, but not permanent. It is only temporary.
