You can use DOPS to actually shatter the piece. You'll have to use a SOP solver
to reapply the cookie to the same piece of geometry over and over again. Once
you have your pieces, then simulate, etc.

Manson: My philosophy is: Don't think. I don't believe in the mind that you think with and scheme with. I don't believe in words.
Reporter: If you don't believe in words, why do you use so many of them?
Manson: Words are symbols. All I'm doing is jumbling the symbols in your brain. Everything is symbolic. Symbols are just connections in your brain. Even your body is a symbol.
