It is shown that the ground state or vacuum to the lattice Euclidean quantum gravity is significantly different from the ground states to the well-known vacua in QED, QCD, et cetera. In the case of the lattice Euclidean quantum gravity, the long-wavelength scale vacuum structure is similar to that in QED, moreover the quantum fluctuations to gravity are very reduced in comparison with the situation in QED. But the small scale (of the order of the lattice scale) vacuum structure to gravity is significantly different from that to the long-wavelength scales: the fluctuation values of geometrical degrees of freedom (tetrads) are commensurable with theirs most probable values.
