No two electrons can occupy the same quantum state, that being comprised of spin, energy level etc.
You may take it to say that everything is connected and some looneys think it explains telepathy. It doesn't.
You might want to look up on fermions and spin a bit if you don't know what they are, but fermions are one type of particle in the standard model including electrons, muons, quarks and others. They have a different type of spin to other particles (bosons). Spin is just a quantum property of a particle.
Hope I helped a little, it can be confusing

n, the principal quantum number
l, orbital angular momentum quantum number
ml, magnetic quantum number
ms, magnetic spin quantum number
s, spin quantum number (always 1/2 for electrons)
l and s are vectors and ml and ms define their projection along a defined axis.

No two electrons in an atom can have identical quantum numbers. This is an example of a general principle which applies not only to electrons but also to other particles of half-integer spin (fermions). This is the simplest definition.
