Intuition behind Bose-Einstein Condensate

I am trying to learn about Bose–Einstein (BE) condensate, and in doing so I encountered some bizarre phenomena, which is a norm in quantum mechanics. I realized matter would turn into 'waves' and lose their identities close to absolute zero. Moreover, I understand we can never reach absolute zero, because as long as there exists a particle, there exists a movement of the particle, which means there exists heat, which means the absolute zero cannot be reached. I was wondering, IF HYPOTHETICALLY, we could reach absolute zero, would that imply that the particle would become 'non-existent'? I do not have a specific question but I would like someone shed light on BE condensate and explain the significance of it and the meaning of BE condensate as a distinct matter. I am more keen on building an intuition.
