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.
