Creating mirror results in SELECT statement

Hi,

I have simple select query that returns results similar to this:

rel_type_id      left_name      right_name
35      Parent      Child
36      Referenced By      Reference To
37      Propagated From      Propagated To

I need to add something clever to the SQL that will automatically create the mirror of these thus returning 6 results, ideally with a new column with zero denoting original and 1 denoting the mirror

rel_type_id      left_name      right_name      Type
35      Parent      Child      0
36      Referenced By      Reference To      0
37      Propagated From      Propagated To      0
35      Child      Parent      1
36      Reference To      Referenced By      1
37      Propagated To      Propagated From      1

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

you can do it as below

select  *, '0' as Type from <your table> -- This is your original query
union all
select  *, '1' as Type  from <your table> -- This is the mirrored query
