I want to access and modify a multi dimensional array but without
knowing the exact number of dimensions.

Basically. I want something like that for every i (except boundaries of

field[i, ...] <- (field[i, ...] + field[i+1, ...] + field[i-1, ...])/3

In principle, ... should just represent the other dimension, for a 1
dimensional field:

field[i] <- (field[i] + field[i+1] + field[i-1])/3

For a 2 dimensional field

field[i, ] <- (field[i, ] + field[i+1, ] + field[i-1, ])/3

For a 3 dimensional field

field[i,,] <- (field[i,,] + field[i+1,,] + field[i-1,,])/3

and so on.

Is there a way to formulate this without writing it for every number of
