In short, the Pauli Exclusion Principle states that in an atom or molecule, no two electrons can have the same four quantum numbers. Because an orbital can only contain a maximum of two electrons, the two electrons must have opposing spins. The two spin states of an electron can be represented as clockwise or counterclockwise rotation around an axis passing through the electron.
