In Thinkscript, is there a way to specify candle aggregation blocks, such as close[25] thru close[10] to apply a function or calculation to? Thanks.

[25] is an offset, not aggregation.
a fold loop could act on a set of values.

tell us more of what you are trying to do.

Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to create a divergence finder

, and to do so, it seems necessary to find the highs and lows of a group of candles or histogram bars further back in time and compare them to a group of more recent candles/ bars. Something like Highest(close[50]- close[25]), though that statement clearly won't compile.
