      Just thinking about it, falsity of the TPC would be deeply disturbing.
      Just imagine the concept of being given a prime, and then being able to instantly determine the primality a different number without knowing
      any of its factors (in particular, knowing that it's composite). That's even spookier than magnets.

      Does anyone seriously doubt the TPC's truth?
