Da'at (ダアト, Daato)? is a world in Shin Megami Tensei V. It is a parallel world to the regular Tokyo. The world is also known as the Netherworld, but has been named "Da'at" by demons. Although the name differs in the English localization, the Netherworld refers to the Expanse.
Da'at is the location where all ten sefirot in the Tree of Life are united as one in the branch of Jewish mysticism known as Kabbalah. In Da'at, all sefirot exist in their perfected state of infinite sharing. The three sefirot of the left column that would receive and conceal the Divine Light, instead share and reveal it. Since all sefirot radiate infinitely self-giving Divine Light, it is no longer possible to distinguish one sefira from another; thus they are one.
After the protagonist loses consciousness in a tunnel collapse accident, he finds himself lost in Da'at, a deserted world resembling post-apocalyptic Tokyo. It is swarmed by various demons, that are at war against each-other for the sake of their own survival.
Although the real world and Da'at are usually kept separate, demons are able to leak in the real world and attack humans.
The location is also home to the Tree of Knowledge.
