The axioms of category theory arise in many contexts

  • structures and maps between them

  • structures and interpretations between them

  • theories and interpretations between them

  • theories and proofs between them

  • states and processes between them

  • words (as input/output) and programs (automata, algorithms) "between" them

  • points in a geometric space and paths between them (→ Feynman's path integrals?)

  • structures representing other structures, i.e. with representations between them (representation not only in the representation theoretic sense, but in a more general one)

I am looking for more examples of this kind.
