The notes would collide and create an unreadable score if you
make them completely aligned along the X axis. Therefore, it's
common notation practice to move one note somewhat to the side
(in the case of notes with stems, you get one note on each side
of the stem, however since you have whole notes, you get one
that's centered on the stem as usual and one that's moved
to the side). The solution that LilyPond gives you in bars 10 and 14
cannot be used in bars 2 and 6 it would cause a collision with
the note in the upper voice. I don't understand what layout
you want to achieve that is still readable.
