How do mummies come back to life?

Mythology says that mummies come back to life through the power of magical curses. If a curse is placed onto the tomb of a person when he or she is mummified, the tomb will become cursed for all of eternity. If a mummy with a cursed tomb is defiled, the mummy will instantly return to life in order to extract revenge on its defilers.

However, mummies cannot actually come back to life, at least not as far as we know. There is no scientific proof that anything that has died can come back to life.
