Is the complete reduction of relief of a high land mass possible?

Question.

Is the complete reduction of relief of a high land mass possible?

Answer. 

The complete reduction of relief of high landforms means the formation of relief-less landforms such as the peneplain.

Practically, it is not possible to complete reduction of relief of a high land mass, as there is always some endogenous force acting on every part of the earth that creates relief on the earth.

Technically, it is possible to complete the reduction or relief of a high land mass. If the high landforms are not subjected to endogenous forces and only exogenous processes such as weathering, erosion, and deposition are active over time, then complete degradation of the reliefs of the high landforms is possible.
