    Electronic state in an atom.   Do you still believe in the Self Consistent Field theory?

      Think an atom of atomic number Z.

      All of the Z electrons are in the same state.

      The whole wave function is a function of 3Z variables.

      In a 3Z dimensional space there appears 3Z! islands of high density place.

      Attached a file which demonstrates the Self ConsistentField method is invalid, please open.
