Lower the suspension point of the rope (the attachment point) without 
adding another segment, until you have space to insert another segment; 
then you attach the segment to the top of the rope and the segment to 
the top of the ceiling again.

Note that you don't need to render the rope the same way you simulate 
it; you always render it going all the way up.
