The Order of Phosphorus (TOPH) is an initiatic body of the Luciferian Tradition presented in the works of Michael W. Ford and associated Adepts. The Luciferian Tradition is founded on several key texts which define the philosophy and specialized corpus of magickial practice known commonly as the "Adversarial Path", "Adversarial Current" and "Luciferian Magick". The Tradition itself is derived from numerous sorcerous traditions and specialized arts which allow the teachings, symbols and integration of the seeker towards the wisdom and power within the Luciferian Path.
The Adversary is firstly a symbol or a "Deific Mask" of numerous yet unique manifestations representing energies inherent in both nature and within the individual. TOPH utilizes a connected and structured system to actually apply Luciferian philosophy and dive the depths of darkness and ascend as a unique bringer of light, shaping the path you wish to take in this life. Luciferian Witchcraft and Adversarial Magick are the tools in which the initiate utilizes in their own unique way to manifest short and long term desires and goals.
The corpus of magickial knowledge is transmitted to the initiate in a challenging way which must be fully experienced before formal initiation begins. The initiate attains the knowledge, insight and power to become the very center of their world responsible for successes and shortcomings. The magickial transmission of the Adversarial Current is uniquely experienced by the initiate by the alchemical illumination of the infernal and empyrean powers. The initiate creates and recognizes the power of the unconscious, primal mind and understands it as "Leviathan", the crooked and coiling serpent of watery chaos.
Michael W. Ford is the Magister of The Order of Phosphorus, a closed order of solitary initiates and The Black Order of the Dragon, the inner guild based around Yatukivah - Persian and Chaos sorcery. He is the author of "Luciferian Witchcraft" which contains 12 different grimoires including the Left Hand Path Tantric Grimoire, Adamu, a forbidden book of Sexual Magick, Goetic Sorcery, a Luciferian approach to the 72 Spirits of the Shemhamforasche, Yatuk Dinoih and other works focused on the darksome rites of the path of Shadow Sorcery and so-called Skir-hand Witchcraft, introduced by Nathaniel J. Harris, a Hereditary Witch from the UK. Known as Akhtya Seker Arimanius, Ford also is the author of Liber HVHI, an explaination of the Luciferian trinity and the rituals of the Qlippoth, The Book of the Witch Moon which features an introduction by Chaos Magician Peter J. Carroll and numerous articles and essays.
Recording with Black Funeral and Darkness Enshroud, a ritualistic-darkwave band, Ford relocated for the first time to Houston, Texas, having just recorded and released his first industrial record, Valefor - Death Magick on Cold Meat Industries "Death Factory Records" in 1996.
Michael Ford was granted the Order of Nine Angles command by Christos Beest in 1996, from which Ford operated until 1998 in Indianapolis. Ford left the active ONA due to what he has described as its Neo-Fascist stance and political ideals, which in his view are not an inherent part of Magick or Satanism:
"I was and still am very interested in the Northern Tradition and the runes... It was something I am not interested in, Nazism and my projects NEVER HAD anything to do with it... I was more of an anarchist in many ways than the labeled "anarchists", I said things which would disturb, that is the point... I am NOT by any means (and this is in practice too) any kind of racist or such. That is ignorance in a high form."
Michael spent several years developing his Magickal practice between 1998 and 2000, when moving to Houston, Texas in October 1999 and editing his Book of the Witch Moon, where he had previously corresponded with Kenneth Grant.Ford continued working on music and recorded several ritual-music albums in the late 1990s, under the band name Psychonaut. Michael's interest in the works of Austin Osman Spare, Kenneth Grant and the mythology of the Adversary throughout the history of humanity were his primary interest during that time .
In 2001 Ford met Dana Dark, a gothic model and vocalist from Houston, and two others to begin recording ritual workings and the practice of the specific "luciferian" magick.The band recorded several albums from that point on, performing several live rituals. The group practiced magick as a Coven during this time period.
In 2003 Ford began publishing chapbooks and distributing them at low cost throughout the Satanic and Left Hand Path underground, which was designed as a type of "hit and run" guerrilla tactic. Ford had written in numerous published interviews that his goal was to upset and redefine the often-stagnant occult genre with an "Adversarial" approach. 2004 brought Michael's first contribution to a soundtrack, during his collaboration with Hexentanz, a ritual-medieval music project, with The Soil Bleeds Black and Psychonaut 75).
Ford published Luciferian Witchcraft in 2005, which quickly reached LULU.com's top 100, where it remained through 2008. Soon after Ford published numerous other left hand path and satanic books, redefining and presenting a new approach to so-called Dark paths of Magick and religion.
Ford is also the founder of The Order of the Phosphorus and The Black Order of the Dragon and a co-founder of The Church of Adversarial Light, a Luciferian Church. Ford has been an initiate and developer of the Luciferian Path for over ten years and also takes a significant interest in ancient Zoroastrian mysteries and Yatukih Sorcery. Ford is the co-owner of Succubus Productions and The Luciferian Apotheca.
He has done soundtracks for the movies Cadaver Bay and Hell Bound Book of the Dead released in 2004. (from wikipedia.org)
