Tetrachord discovery?

If you take the last major in the first tetrachord, and make it the first note in a tetrachord (while the first major becomes the first note in the 2nd tetrachord), then you take the 3rd minor in the new 2nd tetrachord, you then expand it into its scale. Then you plug it in as a jazz melodic minor and basically create a 9 note scale (including the octave). You also can theoretically make it a 19 note scale due to the fact that all the notes can arguable be in the same scale. This may not make much sense in writing, maybe i'll scan some drawing to help explain it, its really fascinating though...if you understand it, or if im incorrect...let me know what you think...heres a link to the pic that i drew out...
