The entropy measures the amount of uncertainty (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entropy_(information_theory))
and to be able to measure that, you need to define the uncertainty or probability of occurrence. So the question is, how are you going to define the probabilities? Once you have defined that, the rest may follow a bit easier.
