We examine the Hubbard model on pyrochlore-type lattices and illustrate how spin liquid features arise at a proximate exactly solvable point and its surroundings. We further introduce a framework for dualities and with its aid demonstrate that interacting Majorana nanowire systems as well as direction dependent Hubbard type and other general planar systems may display various critical and spin glass type phenomena. Lastly, with the aid of dualities we introduce the notion of "partial solvability" and derive a new set of geometric identities which is valid in any dimensions.
