# The displayed category of elementsπ

It is useful to view the category of elements of a
presheaf `P`

as a displayed
category. Instead of considering pairs of objects
$X$
and sections
$s,$
we instead think of the set of sections as displayed *over*
$X.$
The story is similar for morphisms; instead of taking pairs of morphisms
$f$
and fragments of data that
$P(f)(x)=y,$
we place those fragments over the morphism
$f.$

In a sense, this is the more natural presentation of the category of
elements, as we obtain the more traditional definition by taking the total
category of `β«`

.
