Well, other bosons do exist, maybe just not the Higgs. And I think that the answer to your question is yes. If the Higgs is not found, other theories are going to have to be more seriously entertained.
It's humbling, that for all we do know, we still haven't figured out what gravity is all about. :)

Is it possible that Gravity is merely a residual force from either before or during the big bang?
by mk 651 days ago · link
:) I think everything is, right?
But, maybe you are saying: Does it reflect a very early condition of the universe? -No idea.

In a way, yes.
Is it possible that Gravity was indeed the strongest force before the big-bang, and is now the weakest force which had continued to degrade?
After all to keep this tremendous amount of matter together would require a tremendous amount of energy.

Yes, I don't see why it couldn't have evolved, -it might be conditional. That could possibly explain the discrepancies that dark matter is supposed to. Looking out could be looking back on a universe under a different gravitational influence.

I thought the premise behind the Higgs was that it was part of a process that gave a particle it's mass, therefore being instrumental in the way the universe operates. I guess it's all a bit uncertain, shall we say?

True. But mass and gravitation are proportional. It would be very surprising if they weren't intimately related. The idea was that the Higgs created a field that defined this relationship/these characteristics. I agree it's very uncertain. :) pretty exciting, I think.
