The importance of science and physics of the Higgs field is that it allows the creation of the universe, to give mass to particles. If the elementary particles do not interact with the Higgs field and they do not acquire mass matter simply could not exist, so that the universe or galaxies exist, but would be traveling at the speed of light without forming any structure.
The Higgs boson elementary particle would be a mediator of the Higgs field.
