Article IV:

no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State.... without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

The constitution already explicitly provides a route for this, and it doesn't require any changes to the constitution itself.

I am talking about a state splitting up into 60 states to control the senate. You are talking about incorporating new land not formerly a state.
