The same way that Einstein did in GR. Mass is a measure of gravitational attraction which is caused by the bending of space, i.e. the bending of dimensions of time and length.
I would define mass in terms of probability distributions, unlike GR which uses Lorentz Transform. Defining mass using probability distributions makes GR compatible with QM - a completely accidental consequence but not really an unpleasant surprise - so merry early Christmas that's your present.
