Generally speaking, as with the allegory of D'aath splitting open the interiors of the earth, I would correspond D'aath with Piaget's Formal Operational Awareness in a psychograph. D'aath is the aspect of our being which allows us to conduct formal operations on our thoughts (thinking about thinking), and also to engage in the mental symbol manipulation which makes magick possible. (flux capacitor?)
The Vedantic Overmind, as an aspect of mentality that can be illuminated (and therefor easily mistaken for transcendence) is also perfectly correspondent in both my study of the materials and their application in practice with D'aath.
Care to make criticism about those statements? or to make connections with other rabbinical qabalistic lore?
I am unfamiliar with Piaget in general. To the second statement, without excluding people, I have to speak to concepts we might all be familiar with. Have you seen the matrix? Know that interface port they had on the back of their head, the void, that let them recieve the cable jack to enter the matrix? That interface port is perhaps a good metaphor for Da'ath in some ways. My personal work has led me to believe and conclude there is a strong connection between the Angelum Bonorum and Da'ath.

This is why it is very important to pay attention to those who come before you, those who come with you, and those who will follow.
