What are Shells and Elementaries?

"Elementaries....spooks or phantoms of disembodied persons, in general,
to those whose temporary habitation is the Kâma Loka....Once divorced
from their higher triads and their bodies, these souls remain in their
Kâma-rupic envelopes, and are irresistibly drawn to the earth amid
elements congenial to their gross natures. Their stay in the Kâma Loka
varies as to its duration; but ends invariably in disintegration,
dissolving like a column of mist, atom by atom, in the surrounding
elements." H.P. Blavatsky, The Theosophical Glossary.
"Shells. A Kabbalistic name for the phantoms of the dead, the 'spirits'
of the Spiritualists, figuring in physical phenomena; so named on
account of their being simply illusive forms, empty of their higher
principles." H.P. Blavatsky, The Theosophical Glossary
