    I'd tell Fuji-san about the destruction of mountains for coal in Appalachia.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    I was fine when I came, and fine when I left.

    Trigger a tectonic shift.
    Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

    I can't contain my excitement!

    First thought was to understand the intent and identify any loopholes there may be. I'd try to designate just a small part of the peak as Mt Fugi and move just that.
    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.

    I guess I know the answer to the follow up question: "How would you shave Mt. Fuji?"

    Edit: I may have misunderstood your strategy. Could you post a video of your method so I can reassess?

    For science.

    How would I move Mount Fuji? No differently than any other mountain.
