Define mass as that which travels through time?

  1. Dec 15, 2015 #1
    Would it be misleading (to myself) to define mass as that which (insert a group of words like interacts with/experiences/ travels through/ is affected by/...your preference) time? That seems more useful than "that which warps spacetime."

    Both of those definitions would be misleading.

    I agree with Orodruin, both would be misleading.

    Is there a particular standard definition of mass that you are having trouble understanding?
