Hi. GridFlow introduces a data type called the "grid", which is really
just multidimensional lists. Note that this is more like Pd's lists than
Pd's arrays.

Else you can see a single-dimensional array/list in a multidimensional
way: for example if you want a multidimensional-array of A by B by C, then
position (x,y,z) can be computed as (x*b+y)*c+z into a A*B*C-sized
one-dimensional array.
