    Leibniz chose to consign his own logic to the oblivion of his voluminous trunk, where it would remain undiscovered for a century and a half.

    What's the meaning of oblivion here? I found out a phrase like 'oblivion of sleep', however it was generally used in a context such as 'I long for the oblivion of sleep.' When I look up the meaning of the word, I can't understand these sentences. Can someone help me?
