How to increment a variable name?

Let's say I have some variables that I need to repeat in a section.
Ex.

variable_1
variable_2
variable_3
variable_4
variable_5

And I need to call them, like:

block.settings.variable_1
block.settings.variable_2
block.settings.variable_3
block.settings.variable_4
block.settings.variable_5

And they need a schema reference, like:

        {
          "type": "text",
          "id": "variable_1"
        },
        {
          "type": "text",
          "id": "variable_2"
        },
        {
          "type": "text",
          "id": "variable_3"
        },
        {
          "type": "text",
          "id": "variable_4"
        },
        {
          "type": "text",
          "id": "variable_5"
        },


Is it possible to do this all in a loop where the number increases by 1 with every iteration?

I've tried increment/capture/cycle but I can't make it to work because I am not sure how to increment the variable and make it available to be called in liquid.

Thank you!

Thanks for this! I didn't know you can use brackets inside liquid tags.

I am guessing this won't work in the schema/JSON?
