    You cannot "develop a theorem" (at least not a useful one) without knowing the current state of the research. And by that I don't mean "read a few papers", I mean "know all the relevant literature".
    There is no plausible alternative to particles, every field that can lead to dark-matter-like results will appear in the form of particles.
    Particles with a plausible mass also lead to a plausible temperature. Here are some slides.
