Personally -- and I have no
medical background -- I consider this idea way too extreme and divergent from anything ever considered before (as far as I know???) to think it's a good idea in any way. Even if labs stayed good, they don't measure everything so they would never give you a complete picture of all the ways such an approach is affecting your health, short or long term.
I also already struggle myself with eating two-three eggs a day because my guess is that as we evolved, we rarely ate eggs, or binge ate them in the spring but had few to none the rest of the year. I'd venture to guess that 48 raw eggs a day is way beyond anything on the evolutionary map, unless all the same nutrients and in the same amounts were obtained from other foods, on average, year 'round, in a healthy group. If such a group existed(s), what else were they eating that provided other critical factors? What were they not eating that's in 48 eggs a day that could be detrimental in those amounts?
Your many questions about your approach, while definitely worth exploring, in my mind beg the conclusion that there are too many uncertainties due to lack of human experience with this approach.
I'm sympathetic you have trouble eating enough on other diets and need to work with that, but I'd be looking at alternative possibilities. The Okinawa diet is very healthy (at least for their genetics) and not at all calorie dense because it's foods are high in water (you mention you handle liquid well). I would try something like that but completely understand it may not work for you for some other reason(s).
Just MHO. Maybe you're onto something good and as yet undiscovered, but I wouldn't do it.
