    the only laws of mind are fabricated for it by matter

    Does "it" refer to "mind"?

    and the only laws of mind are fabricated for it by matter.

    Does "The only laws of matter are those which our minds must fabricate" mean "the only laws of matter are the laws that are constructed/fabricated by our minds"?
