Interesting discussion and hypothesis. Two thoughts occur to me. What state of matter would the paper be in when it is in the soup transition, would that be a liquid, a powder of cellulose strands or something more exotic? What would happen if you tried this with a sheet of graphene that is held together with chemical bonds that are much stronger than the hydrogen bonds in paper
