So define it, without all the word salad, so that a person can calculate using a measurement. > > I would define mass in terms of probability distributions, unlike GR > which uses Lorentz Transform.

How do you measure the distortion of the ruler? You still have not answered the question about how you physically measure mass with a ruler.
