Elementary embeddings crop up from time to time in category theory as nice homomorphisms, but from a set theoretic perspective there’s a whole lot more to them than that. I will show how an elementary embedding of your universe (which will exist under suitable strong axioms) can be a powerful tool, for example in obtaining colimit preservation theorems.
