It brings to mind an adage my mother always said:  "Close the curtains because if I can't see out, then they can't see in."  It can be so uncomfortable the feeling of being vulnerable.  But that just has to do with the paradigm of separation. Not to state the obvious but I think therein lies the issue. Whenever I feel vulnerable I tend to go on high defence.  When you're around people that you don't really know - for long periods of time, (i.e. community living), it is inevitable that the mask has to come off sometime which can make one feel insecure - and that can be quite scary. I think it's going to be real interesting to witness how the concept of community evolves, as the new paradigms about community come into play and what we can bring to bear upon it's evolution.  But anyway, I guess that's why we're all here on this forum - to start creating new templates.
